Breakfast is good, with lots of options on the menu. Quite a bit of Mexican, as is typical for the area. Omelets are huge - probably 4 eggs. Homemade biscuits are wonderful. Good coffee too. Entrees are pretty expensive (about $13 or so each). Probably...More

A lower tier diner chain with a focus on "yolk" meaning eggs. Certainly the size is substantially like other diners as is the handmade quality. Taste is relative but I would rather not here but better at some others.

I had the Monte Cristo and hash browns. It was a huge plate of food! The sandwich was delicious with good quality ham and cheese in it. I felt the hash browns could be improved a little though. A little too soft. Daughter had French...More
