    The drinks. Crafted and delicious. Extra time to prepare, but worth the wait. Chicken and waffle sliders are amazeballs.

    Avoid the quinoa and black bean burger. It's flavorless and rubbery. Also their fries aren't battered, but also aren't gluten free.

    Great diner; staff is super friendly & super chill. Don't come here if you are in a hurry; a big part of the appeal is that its not a drive-by experience; they will talk. Try the Frank Sinatra martini
