Just a typical diner. Very bland food with no flavor etc. Very greasy. We stopped in for breakfast and will make a point to never go back. Plenty of other choices in the area that are much better

We have frequented this establishment, several times, and though it's usually very busy, there is plenty of seating. The staff are always very cordial, and their breakfast is consistently superb!

This place was packed full of people. Really good breakfast. Only one restroom was available for women which was awkward for such a large place.

Stopped her while in Harrisburg for work overnight. What a great little diner near the city. Loved the decor and portions of food were humongous. Very friendly waitress And homey atmosphere ❤️
