If you like bacon, they have great bacon, fried just right. This is n't the fanciest place, but it's family friendly with a diverse group of people dining there. They have plenty of seating, orders come up quickly, and the customer service is great!

Decent food prices are fair. Waitresses are nice. Chili was good and so are double deckers. Old fashion place with alot of history. Try it.
