Must stop if you are doing the Route 66 thing. Food good, service good and no much too look at. Prices and serving are good.

The best diner food in town. The pork tenderloin is huge easily enough for two. The prices are very affordable.

Waitress was cheerful and very prompt in her service. Food quantities and quality was outstanding. Very reasonable price for what we dined on. Fed a family of 5 for under $40.00 and all left with very full tummies.
