Visited here during the farm show. We showed up with 6 guest and accommodations were made for us to all sit together . The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The food was plentiful and no complaints. The price is very reasonable for the amount of food you get .

We went here for breakfast on one of the mornings during our most recent business trip to the capitol region. If you're into a great diner experience this is the place! They do it old school here, big portions, water right to the table when you sit down, quick service, reasonable prices. The scrapple was amazing along with the rest... More

Well located off major highway. Atmosphere is good. Service is inconsistent... staff are friendly when they are attentive to their responsibilities. Food quality seemed good. Soups were delicious and salad greens were very fresh. Not a fan of diner desserts, but baghlava cream cup was incredible.

Food was good. Service was slow. The desserts are awesome. The waitress had too many tables to take care of.

Great diner. I relocated from New York to Texas a few years ago and they don't have east coast style diners - or diners at all...so this was a great find for me while in the area. Very extensive menu, great service and very clean. Our server was fantastic. Bonus: it's open 24hrs.

I brought my wife and three kids to this diner for breakfast. They pushed us into a booth made for 4 people so we were cramped. The kids menu is small and we ended up spending $60 plus tip. None of us were able to get refills so I was I was disappointed.

We went for lunch/dinner and breakfast. Breakfast was average. The lunch/dinner we had was good and we will go back. For 4 with drinks and tip it was close to $50.

The other evening my wife and I stopped for diner. Service was very good, restaurant was clean but the food was lacking flavor. I love the calves liver and onions and I usually have that with french fries with gravy. My wife had the open faced turkey sandwich/dinner. Our dinners came and looked very good. I tried mine and it... More
