Sweetest people ever! Amazing food, anything you get I can almost guarantee you will love. I know I do. They're a second family, from the owner to the bus boys- get to know them. It'll become one of your favorites too

Good standard food but go for the specials which are moderately priced and you get more for your buck (soup, salad, sometimes desserts). It gets crowded at peak times so go early or later.

I had recently just gone to this diner for coffee and to meet a friend, but while there I noticed on the menu that they served Polish food, so recently we headed out on a Friday night and the Polish sampler just happened to be one of the specials that evening. So we had kielbasi, pieroghies, stuffed cabbage plus soup,... More

This is your typical diner experience - unbelievably huge menu, giant portions, breakfast any time. The food is decent, though, unlike some similar places, the service is quick, and the staff is friendly. I don't understand how they can serve soup or salad, an entree that is big enough for 2 or 4 people, and dessert/coffee for such low prices,... More

The food and service here vary greatly. Depending on who your server is and/or who might be in the kitchen, the experience here can be great or horrible. You never know what you're going to get. Good luck with this one.

We stopped in here as it's right off the highway. It was a very busy restaurant and now we know why. The service was friendly and speedy and the food was very good and portions large.

A true gem of a diner challenged by its location off the 202/206 Somerville Circle but well worth a couple of orbits to find it (head toward Route 22 East). Great food & service awaits. Portions are generous & satisfying. Highly recommend

Met a friend here for coffee so we only had coffee muffins for a quick snack, so I don't want to put any more than 3 stars so as to inaccuragely rate it for another reader. Service was good and the muffins and coffee were good too. Large room can be noisy,..maybe if you want to chat, you might want... More

My son-n-law is eastern European and favors Polish prepared meals. What a surprise to find on their expansive menu Polish specialties. The diner was packed, which is a good sign. The service was attentive and on-the-money. The food was prepared to all of our liking.
