First! its cash only. Good to know as we skipped out the first time we went not wanting to pay ATM prices (they have one in the store). The people are friendly and fast. Limited seating but worth the wait. Prices are cheap eats. My husband had the footlong with Chili and loved it. I had the breakfast special and... More

When a girlfriend suggested we meet here for breakfast, I thought this was only a hot dog place. I had no idea they served breakfast too. Prices are super reasonable, food is home cooked, with large portions, and in authentic diner style. The waitress was super friendly and service was quick. Only downside is that it's a small restaurant with... More

What a cute little hot dog stand. This place is a gem. The hot dog with the chili was so tasty! The fresh cut potato chips were also a hit. But the one thing that stood out and really "wowed" me was the Greek sausage! They told me they make it fresh themselves (they even sell it by the pound... More

This is a great spot for breakfast. Friendly staff, delicious food, and a welcoming environment. Great French toast special, delicious with a side of fried potatoes.

Small/busyrestaurant in a strip mall. Retro décor with interesting license plates, Elvis collections, etc. Limited seating with bar stools at the counter or small tables alongside the wall. Arrive early for a seat. No credit cards, deals only cash. Food is good, but not appealing. Omlette was unappealing - dark in color & dry, rather than a bright, soft/fluffy yellow.... More

Papou George's is one of penisula's hidden gem for breakfast. The owner always comes out and greets everyone and they are very fast getting the food to the tables. If you are up early try this place but they get packed so get there early..

This owner gets to know his customers and greets them by name when then enter. The staff is pleasant and efficient. The food, everything on the menu, is just great. Bring cash, cause thats all they take.

A classic diner with a breakfast and lunch menu. I love the french fries, and the burgers are tasty. For a real treat, if you are hungry, the the burger with pastrami. Or a breakfast with eggs and hash. The owner is often there, and will make sure that everything is right. This is a gem of restaurant. Go there... More
