This is my favorite (all day) breakfast spot. I can guarantee that you will not leave this diner hungry. And, if you can, sit in Paula’s section. She be sure to make you feel at home.

Cannot believe this place is rated so high. The food is something you get in diners anywhere on the highway. Service is not very fast.

Anytime I have eaten here I have found the service very good and the food exceptional. Their desserts are also fantastic. Everytime I have ordered there the portions are huge and very tasty. Upon my last visit I was craving something that was homemade. The...More

Pretty good, busy at 7 on. Saturday but we were seated quickly. Good selection, including some yummy Greek specialities. Server didn’t tell us the specials, and they could use a dimmer on the lights, but all in all hit the spot.

This restaurant has a little bit of everything. I always enjoy going here because of their huge portions and deep menu. This location is crowded almost all day every day, but I think it's worth the wait. The friendly, fast service was enjoyable. I had...More

Eaten here several times. This is your classic greek diner. Huge menu. I have had the omelets, the gyro plate, and the reuben. All were tasty. The one thing you should do is leave room for dessert. The choices are great: giant cakes, pies, and...More

A really good diner. It is a diner, a big diner, and it has a really big menu. I’ve been for both breakfast and lunch and both were really good. And big portions. Yeah, a lotta big here.... Seriously, the breakfast came fast and hot....More

I wanted to happily share that, while there is not a separate gluten free menu, it is extremely accommodating! There is plenty to choose from (ask your server and he/she can guide you) and employees are super knowledgable... More
