We both had the $10 burger, fries, and malt deal but it was enough food that we could have shared. The large cheeseburger, big helping of (excellent) waffle fries, and malt was a great deal. The exterior needs renovation and the bathrooms are pretty gross,...More

The cinnamon rolls here are so good. Fresh, hot, and with cream cheese frosting. What more can you ask for! It's a must order

Even with $15 Groupon it was still $20 for two people for bland breakfast. Had been here before and it seemed ok, which is why we returned. Coffee was weird tasting as well and it was $3 each-wow... Liked the atmosphere but that's about it-server...More

The restaurant was old and dirty. The table I sat at had a dirty fork underneath it. I barely wanted to touch the salt and pepper shakers, except that I had to, because the food (eggs, hashbrowns and toast) was so bland I had to...More

We stopped in here for a quick dinner while in the area. Older style diner with its own parking lot (nice to have free parking in Uptown) breakfast menu and sandwiches. Prices are decent 10 to12. They have a cheeseburger, fries and malt for 10!...More
