This diner was very busy on a Monday morning when we visited. We found a table and waited while it was cleared off. The food was good and very reasonable price.

Very attentive service in a neat, clean neighborhood diner. Excellent specials at a good price. Endless coffee was good & it's fun to watch the locals have fun with the wait staff. Won't go wrong here.
