    Get the Chicken & Waffles, all white, gravy won't regret it. Quite possibly the best fried chicken in the city...especially when you get tired of all the Korean style double fried.

    The Thanksgiving turkey platter here is amazing! A nice size portion of succulent white meat with mashed potatoes and baby carrots was perfectly prepared and served. It is on the menu year round.

    Awesome comfort food at this retro style diner. Matzoh ball soup is solid as well as the ALT sandwich. Chicken and waffles is a big item and the chocolate cake and milk is decadent.

    The chicken and waffles are yummy. Put some syrup on the waffles then take a bite with chicken and the gravy. Super fantastic!

    The "Thanksgiving Dinner" is a must-order, with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and some of the best cranberry sauce I've had the pleasure of eating -- and I'm a cranberry sauce connoisseur.

    Waitress is nice, music is catchy, but too loud whilst eating. Turkey club not my favorite, but good proportion, and pulled pork was just okay. hipster spot w/heavier price tag due to the location.
