I think this place has unfairly had a bit of a 'bad rap', so to speak. We went there on a Monday, and to be honest, we were wanting to go somewhere (anywhere) else, but this diner was the only place open on Mondays, for some reason. My girlfriend and I both had the chicken fried steak, which was tasty. The home-fried potatoes were fabulous, among the best I've ever eaten.
The ambience of the place is kind of tattered and old to be sure, but that doesn't affect the food, which was nice.
