Description: The Best Breakfast & Lunch served all day every day. From Frettas to Philly Steak sangwiches. The most unique omlette and specialty burger menu anywhere. It's like cheers without the beer. Large quality portions. We encourage legal carry. We also encourage prayer/grace. We talk politics, religion and sports. We don't like PC. Public sector needs to remember they are our subordinates. We did build this business!

“Great food with an agenda”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

Went here for breakfast one morning.

Service was great, food was excellent. First ever breakfast sandwich I have had with Kielbasa in it! Can definitely recommend.

The decor and menu have a decidedly pro-republican, anti-democrat slant and it's very much in your face. Some of it is amusing (like the Obama/NYS breakfast special - 2 eggs and toast for $1.99 plus $17.99 tax), but mostly I found it over-the-top and sniping.

I tend to like to keep politics out of my music and my food, and this I found rather off-putting (for the record, I would have the same attitude if it was pro-democrat, anti-republican). If you enjoy that type of thing, then this is a fantastic place for you!

Without the agenda, this would have been a 5-star review for a diner, no doubt. But, as it says on the menu "If you don't like it, too bad".

“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

I was in the area for a conference and stumbled on this wonderful little diner. I was greeted by the staff as soon as i walked in. This is the sort of place where you feel like everyone eating there is a regular and even if you're not they make you feel like one. Food was great, portions large, and prices reasonable. It's a place where good, hard working, honest people gather for good food and good conversation.

The staff is amazing! I just love the friendliness we receive everytime we visit . It is a welcome change to service elsewhere. They make you feel like you're a regular even if you're not. The food is great and the prices are certainly reasonable

“A gem of a diner for great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2012

This little diner is actually located right next to the train tracks. And trains do run through there all the time. This diner is open from 6 am to 2 pm every day. It is always packed on weekends. They specialize in great omellettes (huge) and have daily omellette specials. They have omellettes you'd never find elsewhere (Reuben, Philly steak, chili cheeseburger, French onion, etc.) along with the more traditional choices. The service is always friendly and fast.
