My fiancée and I just LOVE this place for lunch! Went in the other day and asked for a cheese steak. I'm a big guy so I usually ask for double meat on a cheesesteak. I'm really glad I didn't! The sandwich came on a fresh hoagie and had so much meat on it that had I asked for double... More

All I can say is I love it. The Food Is delicious and they deliver. Milkshakes are awesome too. The fries need to have a little more flavor to them but everything is good! !!!!!

My family and I were on the fly and had a hankering for something sweet. One of my sons spotted this old time diner along the way and so we swung on in to give them a whirl. Very friendly wait staff and the Root Beer floats were spot on! The place was filled with aromas of grilled goodness, but... More

The onion rings on their sign caught my attention; unfortunately the ring were frozen box, not handmade. Our steak sandwich was good. The 50's decor is fun to read while waiting on your food. Service was good, she my soda glass full.

We've eaten here several times. We've never been disappointed although we have heard many bad things. I love the Texas straws and I've had many sandwich options and have been pleased every time. I hear their shakes are great!
