Food was really good. Service was really good. The entire vibe was a diner from the 70s. It isn't something they are trying to do though, it is all real.

Just passing through and looked for a place for lunch. This place was top of list on my phone so tried it. Service was great, restaraunt was clean and food was excellent. You could tell they used locally grown produce. Definitely will stop in again.
