“Good lunch options!”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

My friend & I ate here on our way back to the airport. We both had the buffalo burger & waffle fries. The burger was very flavorful & moist. Fries were excellent with the spices on them (my friend gor her fries plain & they were also good,). Service was excellent & fast.

“Diners, Drive-ins, Dives isn't always right”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

It was on Triple D, so I tried it. Twice. Just couldn't get myself to be a fan though.

We shared probably the four most popular breakfast dishes amongst us.

Biscuits and Gravy--not impressed and would not order again. Didn't care for the biscuits at all. Small and seemed like a quick bisquick bake. Gravy was ok but nothing memorable.

Corned beef hash - the corned beef was ok--just ok--for the first few bites and then I didn't want any more.

Spinach Mushroom Avocado (SMA) Benedict - a LOT of spinach. It could be renamed the egg/mushroom/avocado-topped spinach. It was ok but I wouldn't try it again.

Chicken fried steak - gravy was bland, no kick to it. CFS was kind of flavorless too. Granted not many places even do CFS and very few of them do it that well. But would not want to order this again.

Home fries were good. But after a few bites you are done.

I wanted to share other's enthusiasm but I just can't. Seemed even more like a hippie place this last time. Some of the waitresses are hot, but covered in tattoos and piercings, so if you're not into that then it's just weird and off putting to someone as conservative, bland and boring as me. Doesn't give you the feel of clean, wholesome, hygienic. I'm sure they are perfectly hygienic...but the place definitely has a certain vibe that isn't for everyone.

“Great Breakfast Fast Seating”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

Had the biscuits and gravy...it's the best in town so far. Perfect ratio of gravy and biscuit and great quality! Mocha was good and served in a unique mug. Boyfriend had huevos rancheros omelet described as delicious. Friends had eggs Benedict omelet and loved the bacon inside. Can't wait to go back. Was a bit loud but oh well!

“Fun for the Younger Crowd”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Great place for young people to gather, have some good food and visit. Funky and very noisy atmosphere. Seating not comfortable. Used to like to stop by when younger but not anymore, not comfortable or relaxing in any way. But it's a very popular diner amongst the younger crowd, in the summer it is overflowing on week-ends at breakgast time. It has it's niche, good food, good friends, but not comfy for us older folks.

I had the chicken verde breakfast burrito and it was the best breakfast burrito that I have ever had. The wait was a little long, but that says a lot about this place's popularity.
