“Great Diner; Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

This out of the way diner was recommended to me on a road trip along I-90 through Washington State. It's just off I-90 at exit 106 (about a mile along University Way) and it was well worth the stop for lunch.

A diner that is decorated with old-style automotive signs, etc did not feel tacky. Booth, table and counter seating and a friendly staff. Milkshakes were excellent. We had a Panhead Burger (swiss cheese and mushroom) and a T-Bird Chicken Sandwich which was grilled. Both served with steak fries. Fresh buns, well cooked meat , great taste.

This will definitely be a stop that I make again.

“Delicious diner breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

The corned beef hash had an excellent flavor, though a bit pasty. The hash browns were also good. The pork sausage patty had an odd metallic flavor, like low grade turkey can get. The breakfast was OK, but next time I'd probably stick with lunch.

“What a great quirky place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Really loved all the old motor related signs and photos of car events that had taken place there. The service was friendly and the food was pretty good as well, the club sandwich lasted me the rest of the day. Well positioned just off our main route. Glad we made the detour
