“Great Cheesesteak, Local Feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

This is a nice, small diner-like restaurant. The people were friendly and the food came out quickly. Ordered a cheesteak which I highly recommend...a whole steak is 16", do bring a friend or get a half! Price was about average for two people, around 20 dollars for the cheesteak and a two person order of fries.

“Excellent food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2013 via mobile

I love the food there, the pork roll is terrific. The coffee is strong. The home fries are so so. The facility is in desperate need of updating. The wait staff is friendly and everyone seems to know each other.

“Friendliest place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

They opened their doors after Hurrican Sandy hit with very little food to cook...but still managed to have food and Hot coffee for those that came in to eat. They were friendly and pleasant. Thank you for that in this time of heartache.
