    The waiter got my order wrong, we waited so long for the waiter to come and so long for the food to come, the taste was okay, the presentation ok. Price ok but they cld make their food taste better

    Horrible service. Went at 6am for breakfast. There was 1 other customer. 10 minutes later I didn't even have a menu yet. Walked out.

    Unfortunately changed for the WORSE. If it's 3:28am and nothing else is open, stop in, but otherwise go just about anywhere else for a similar vibe, tastier food, a larger menu and MUCH better value.

    Open 24 hours, usually no waiting for a table; food is decent, large portions of greasy breakfast fare, although some healthier options do exist. A little pricey, but worth the 24 h convenience.

    I wished I loved it but the truth is everything I've had is so greasy. The service was really friendly and sweet but the food is pretty disappointing.

    Make your own grilled cheese - add whatever you like to their buttery Texas toast. The burger was average, but the breakfast food is all pretty good.

    Grilled Cheese sandwich burger will leave you full for the rest of the day but worth it! But found service to be slow, so don't go when you're REALLY hungry!

    Good decor. Terrible food. The salad dressings were overly vinegary and the chicken completely dry. The calamari breading was so salty it was inedible. :(

    "The Fat American" isn't just insulting, it's crap. Don't be fooled by that alluring malty aroma; these are the driest pancakes you'll ever eat.

    Had another Turkey Burger; the "Deep South" with flavorful pulled pork and crispy onions. Still big and juicy, and better without cheese. Fries were fine. Overall meal hit the spot. Still pricey

    Turkey Brie sammy was totally saturated in olive oil. Took an hour and 45 mins to get it. Filled with obnoxious club rats. A definite miss!

    Turkey burger was good..big, juicy and tasty. Bit too cheesy. Onion rings were good, kind of chicken fried - could have used a few more. Not bad overall, but expensive for $20

    Great menu! The only "negative" is that the portions are HUGE and you can never finish what you just paid for. That's why I just always order the alcohol or coffee.

    The option to have your burger on a bun OR wrapped in lettuce is something I wish more establishments offered. Great low-carb alternative because eating a burger with your hands is a sacred ritual. :)

    The fried chicken is my new fav menu item. It's super yummy, but I get it with spinach rather than the cheesy mashed potatoes.

    fav things: The Reuben, Prairie Omelette, Smoked Salmon Platter & the Nicoise Salad (but the tuna is canned, not fresh). Turkey burgers are good, but the beef ones are always dry & over cooked.

    This place is "open" 24 hrs and seems to cater to "Club scene" after midnight. Don't let that fool you. The food is great here. Fried chicken and the breakfast options are always a good choice here.
