The best Diner chicken and dumplings. They could pass easily for your mothers dumplings Every wed and Sunday they have all you can eat. These dumplings are made fresh and are rolled with multiple thin layers. Makes them light and fluffy. Don’t miss out.

Though the outside doesn't appear too exciting, the food, service and atmosphere are all excellent. The eggs were perfectly prepared and served quickly. We will be back next time we are in the area.

I've had waffles and and omelet here. Food isn't that good !!! Tastes like it comes from a box or frozen. My dad insists on eating here here because it's cheap. Waitresses are okay. Don't recommend, unless you're on a extremely tight budget.

My steak and cheese was not great...maybe it was just an off day but I think they can do better. Their lunch specials come with soup which was great but they really need to step up their food. It would also be nice if they...More
