    Service was good. I got the kerbey queso but I wish I would have gotten the guac on the side because it mixed in. Got the Denver omelette & it was good but a bit too many bell peppers for my taste.

    Great service but for the slighlty higher price than a regular diner I expected better food quality and/or ambience and got neither. Pancakes are too sweet and not fluffy enough.

    REAL good gluten free pancakes, special was banana cocoa flavor. They initially gave me the wrong pancake, so they took it off the check! Not the cutest ambience but worth it for the food :)
