Nothing to write home about,in our opinion. Large portions, I think my partners food was better than mine.I had spanish rice, she had chicken,potatoe&macoroni salad plate. Interesting classic type stuff to look at.

Doesnt look like much from the outside, but you are in for a treat. Reasonable prices, home cooked food. Potato salad is excellent. Love the egg salad sandwiches, my hubby loves the goulash. Mike the owner is very friendly. Friday night fish fry with mac and cheese - need i say more? You have to try this place.

Pretty good diner food. I would be going to the trucker rest stop up the road on the highway and getting these guys to come back for some good diner food. And I would be open 24 hours a day

Had to send back the macaroni and cheese as it tasted gritty. Their goulash isnt all that great either.. Fish fry is good. Just be careful what you get if you have never been there.

Food was great, waitress was attentive and pleasant. A trip back in time. Parking lot needs to be paved again but the inside was a bit better.
