“Breakfast Heaven”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

Great place for a good BIG breakfast. Wait can be kind of long (out the door long). Worth it if you have the time. All cooked to order. Can be a little slow. Prices are not outrageous, but not fast food cheap. Never had a bad meal here

“Liked it, but a bit overrated”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

I liked it, but it was a bit of a letdown. Big portions, good quality, but long wait in a drab decor. Prefer Yours Truly or Michael's on Shaker Square.

“You will be full!”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Excellent breakfast! The grits were wonderful, and such a treat in Cleveland! The servers were busy and great. Be prepared to wait a while for your food, however. In addition to the restaurant, I noticed a huge take-out business. But once it comes, you will be very pleased. Huge portions, and delicious!

“Good eats diner”
Reviewed 12 November 2012

Don't be afraid of the plain exterior. This diner is the real deal. There was a crowd as we arrived for an early lunch. Quickly a table was cleared, and we were ready to order. Two of the people in our party ordered chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and couldn't stop raving about their choice. The mashed potatoes were made from REAL potatoes....no instant potatoes here. Two others in our party ordered the pancakes. Served piping hot, the pancakes were tasty. This place was full of locals and obviously a hit among the locals based on the crowd.
If you like a good diner, this is the place for you.

“Great corned beef”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

We stumbled upon this place while in Cleveland last weekend, it is definitely a small place but the lunch was excellent, Warm juicy corned beef on toasted rye was delicious! Try it, you won't be disappointed.
