A group of 6 of us came here after a late night out on the town. Staff were friendly and professional. The prices were quite reasonable. Yes, I'll be back.

We stopped here after going to the Packers vs. Lions game at Ford Field. It was really busy and the staff was doing their best to keep up. It has a cool old school diner vibe, complete with the servers wearing the retro paper hats....More

We stopped in for an early lunch, around 11:15, and the place was busy but there was plenty of seating available. We ordered standard coney dogs and they were very good. We would go back.
