The food here was very good. Toast is grilled and hashbrowns are Greek style with onions. Meats were excellent. Only problem I saw was it was a little overpriced. $10.69 for two eggs, hash browns, meat and toast with ice tea.

It's a diner, and it's a pretty good one. If you understand that then you'll be happy. If you expect something fancier, then you won't.
