      This is the friendliest restaurant I’ve been to in years. The comfort food is affordable and the service is impeccable. They have a specials board each day and John had the pot roast and I had the chicken caesar salad with vegetable soup. The wait staff are so friendly, you’d think you were back in 1959. The ambiance is that of a traditional family diner.

  •   The food here is classic diner.  The breakfast always comes out the same and the service is always the same- great.  The ambiance has the classic diner look, red booths and some tables in the middle.

      We work across the street from them and have gone more times than can remember.  Today we were craving comfort type food with the rain.  Luckily todays menu included Chicken and Dumplings..  OH MY GOODNESS OH MY GOODNESS !!!!  DELISIOUS.  Please give them a try.

    Thank you as always Frank and Jorge.

      Very nice, the atmosphere was like being home with family. More than enough food I had to take half of my meal home. A hidden gem.
