The fried and bar b que chicken along with the spaghetti are the best specials. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. Good food for the cost. Ask for the senior discount.

On a Saturday evening when it wasn't busy, very hard to get service, food compared to a fast food restaurant, not an individualized menu. Not the cleanest place during this visit. What was apparent is that if you know an employee, you will get better service, if not , you get forgotten about.

The food is always great, especially the country style steak smothered in gravy and fresh onions. The waitresses are always on time with the refill of tea which is sweetened just right. The owner always greets me with a smile and asks if everything is ok. That may not mean much to you, but to me, that makes the whole... More

A shiny diner with comfort food. Menu features items like hamburger steak or chicken pastry. Service was very good and the prices were reasonable.

If you want home cooking this is the place to visit. My mom goes there almost every day for lunch. She loves veggies and here you can get a wide assortment. Typical Diner food. Good Breakfast too.

I love this place! I've eaten there often over the many years they have been in Clayton. I usually order from the daily specials board and it is always great. The chicken sandwich is delish and the buns for the sandwiches and burgers make them special. My kids eat stuff like collard greens and black eyed peas with their to... More
