This was just what we were looking for; very busy, great atmosphere, typical American diner. Fantastic burgers and sides followed by yummy waffles stuffed with melted marshmallow and covered with fudge and chocolate sauces.

this pace is great if you are looking for a meal with a little bit of fun. the all decals and the milk shakes were amazing. the servers were more than pleasant and that always makes every experience better in my opinion.

Went as a family group for breakfast Christmas morning. As it was early it wasn't crowded yet. Wait staff very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious and servings large. Eggs and bacon were cooked perfectly. Some of us had the pancakes and raved about them. Definitely would go back.
