Yes, it’s a diner and kind of a dive, and while the “just the facts ma’am” wait staff may run true to form for diners everywhere, the food is fantastic. The decor is eclectic as are the regulars. It felt like dinner and a show...More

On the scale of diners, drive ins and dives, this place makes the dive chart being a hole in the wall with funky decor...and great people who took care of us and food was good and huge portions. I'd go back for sure. The scariest...More
