“Good food and good service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

We stopped by for a quick bite. Today, there were no long lines (Sundays they're sitting on the curb, waiting!). We had the French toast and a BLT. Both orders were prompt and tasty. Our server was pleasant and helpful. The cost for both with coffee came to $10.71 plus tax. This is a down- to- earth restaurant that is open 7am-3pm Tuesday through Sunday. There is a bar. It is not handicapped accessible and there are stairs to climb.

“Great breakfast on the way to Niagara Falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Stopped in based on Tripadvisor reviews. Met Sophia and Anna who served us at the counter. The place was packed at 9:00am Sunday with a lot of locals who come for the good food. My omelet (Sophia's #2) was delicious and filling. Anna's homemade hollandaise sauce on my wife's eggs benedict was great. We'll definitely go again when in the area.

“Dive - as in Dinners Drive ins and Dives”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

I got caught up in the reviews of this place and we drove 20 minutes or so to get there. Industrial / Commercial area - there were at least 20 people waiting to get in 9:30 AM on a Sunday Morning. Figured it had to be worth the wait.

The place is really a Dive - I couldn't believe that we ( 4 of us) waited to eat there. Once I got inside I felt that we had to be nuts to have waited.

As I looked at the walls, I noticed that Guy Fiere had visited this place a few years earlier...........sudenly I was now expecting something much more than it appeared to be.

Service and Food were very good. Lots of choices and everyone enjoyed their meal. It was kind of fun eating in some place that I never would have given a second look. Actually if we hadn't waited so long we would have walked out. But the fact that it was on Dinners Drive ins and Dives - made it a very unique experience. Place was jammed and everybody seemed like a regular except us.
