    Best chicken fried steak & gravy. Some awesome chefs cook perfect food but other chefs & days not as much. Never was able to figure out when there. Its a lucky surprise sometimes! Always good tho!

    Try the JUMBO #vegan hotdogs w/sauerkraut, jalapeño & tapatío ($4.79) on #meatlessmonday. That'll give you energy without being too filling for a day out on the water

    Quality varies wildly depending on the dish, but the NY strip steak is reliably tasty (charred yet not overdone). Salmon salad is also good - salmon on top of a large salad bowl of iceberg lettuce!

    Good diner food, fun atmosphere. The Pho is quite good, along with spring rolls. Daniel provided excellent service and made you feel welcome. Will definitely return.

    Great staff. Except some late nights, a rude, sour, incomprehensible older lady who's kinda crappy- My only complaint. Almost everyone else: spectacular service & makes u smile They work hard, too!

    Perfect late night diner food for a cheap price. Make sure you split a plate of mozzarella sticks and come early for Waffles as they stop selling them after 11!

    Vegan friendly but not dog friendly yet. Very busy on the weekends for breakfast through lunch. Get there early -- which is easy since they're open 24 hrs./day.

    Phi only has rare steak, but still good. This place is ridiculously cheap and perfect for binge eating. Cappuccino milkshake blew my mind.

    Be sure to have your order ready or the waitress will give you the cold shoulder and home dentistry would be more enjoyable than the service

    Not bad for lunch but their tastiest stuff is their breakfast and Asian food. Spring rolls are good and the pancakes are delicious...big too!

    Nice local place. Pho had way too much star anise in broth. I can still taste it a day later.

    I'd been looking forward to eating here for a loooong time. I ordered the potato pancakes which ended up being hash browns with green onions & parsley. That made me sad. The bathroom was filthy too.

    Food is pretty good but the ceiling fan broke while we were eating. Beware of hot weather.

    The food looks great, the waitress is sweet, but the service is soooo slow. The place isn't even half full and I've been waiting on a burger for over 15 minutes...

    A tip: Don't go here. Inflated prices for mediocre food at best. Unless you're super drunk or stoned, then anything here will taste spectacular.
