Breakfast was average. Service was great. The place is always busy, so others must see what I'm missing. Typical strip mall joint.

It is unusual that the food was not better than average, but plz don't give up on us. Glad the service was good, though. We do excel at most meals. We are there for 32 years now and we care about each and every visitor. More

It was breakfast for the kids, lunchtime for me. I got the famous cheeseburger loaded. I ended up using a knife and fork to eat it. It was too big to try to hold it and eat. My daughter got the eggs benedict and was very pleased. Overall, we were happy and full for the trip home.

I was wrong on my first review of them.......they DO serve dinner. Thanks to the owner for correcting me. Wife and I had blood work in the AM so were hungry by the time we got here. Both of us had eggs and/or bacon, sausage, toast, grits, etc and we were not disappointed. Service was quick, friendly and coffee was... More

This a little, hole-in-the-wall hidden gem! The breakfast is fantastic, the portions are huge, and the staff is friendly.

Was suggested by a friend of mine (both of us from New England) for breakfast. Service and food was great. My eggs benedict were perfect, wife's pancakes were good but average and my buddy's Hoboken Hash looked fantastic!!! Give it a try, you won't be disappointed

This is a very clean and cheerful restaurant. The food is always good. Some menu items offer free coffee, which helps us seniors. The waitresses are always pleasant. Good location with plenty of parking.

Had the omelet special, very good. Hubby had standard eggs over. All the food was good but service was very slow for how few people were there. Also what's up with the toast, looked like 4 end slices cut in half. Will go back and recommend.

Sorry about your toast. We don't buy standard loaf breads but instead buy from a bakery based in Sarasota and sometimes the loaves are not shaped the same from one end to another...The cooks should have changed loaves. Again we are sorry. More

Description
We opened in 1984 and are PROUDLY celebrating 31 years at this location with the same ownership. We serve great COMFORT food in large portions and many of our menu choices are all inclusive. Our over-stuffed Omelets and breakfast Skillets are huge, and you may share without an extra charge (smaller sizes avail.). Delicous homemade Biscuits and Sausage Gravy. Great Pancakes from a guarded recipe. Best Grits anywhere. Triple Deckers, Philly Cheese Steaks and great French Fries too. Our Potato Salad and Cole Slaw, Meatloaf, Salisbury Steak and Meatballs...All made from scratch. We bread our own Fish for our Fish Fry and serve slow roasted Prime Rib AuJus Thurs.-Sat. We even have a fountain with real hand dipped Ice Cream, Shakes and Malts....And THE BROOLYN EGG CREAM. Pies, homemade Walnut Brownies and huge N.Y. Corn Muffins....Split open and grilled with butter Mmmmm. Our dinner menu includes soup or salad, a generous entree incl. Potato and veg. A beverage and dessert for under $10. We have a senior dinner portion that incl. A beverage for $6.99. Our burgers are fresh,never frozen, certified Angus beef! Our hot dogs are NATHANS FAMOUS. The menu is typical 'DINER" fare and is 5 pages. Whatever your in the mood for, we have it. We also would like to show you why we don't have to advertise. Although we are in a strip mall behind Carrabbas, we have an old railroad car look, complete with a long counter and stools, tables, booths and neon lighting. Come in and try the TRULY best kept secret in the area. Joe & Valerie
