Very good diner, typical diner fair. Always fast friendly service. Food is always cooked well and has flavor too. Their deserts are really really good too.

This is not a 5 star restaurant, but the food is good, service is quick, and they have a large selection, with breakfast available anytime, and a small salad bar. Easy to get to with plenty of parking.
