We have been here twice..both for breakfast and lunch. Both times we were pleased and the food was excellent. The Senior breakfast specials are very adequate. For lunch, the burger was cooked to perfection and the fries were great. Friendly and helpful waitstaff.

We have loved this place for years, but prices are going through the roof! I understand about new minimum wage issue, but when eggs with bacon and eggs with corned-beef hash for two people cost $27.10, it's time to rethink the whole process. Shame, but...More

Gravy tasted like flour and milk...no flavor. Biscuit very bland also. Bacon slices were so thin I could see through them. Egg cooked as ordered. Service was fine. Both times I have eaten here the food was very mediocre.

Ate breakfast here with friends while visiting Tucson. Had the daily special green chili omelet which was excellent. Our waitress was attentive, friendly, and helpful. The pancakes that came with the omelet were huge. We will definitely come back on our next visit to Tucson.

Went with a friend that has been a few times. Seems this is a popular place amongst the locals. I am guessing because there are very few breakfast joints in the area. My friend had something cant remember with hashbrowns that tasted sweet and like...More
