    Service was ok, they hover. Not sure if they want to be a Mexican, Greek, or Mediterranean theme. Had the buffalo wrap, good but needs extra sauce. Bonus- fun smiley face kids fries.

    Took 10 minutes for the waitress to take the order. Had to be reminded about bringing out coleslaw and pickles, as well as napkins.Skirt Steak Sandwich was good. Wish there was more meat though.

    Try the buffalo wing platter, they are crispy not slimy. They cost almost the same as the regular wing appetizer, but it comes with some slamming crispy fries.

    Our favorite diner in the area. Affordable and delicious food. Not your typical diner experience. Try the Combo Platter, a mixture of deep-fried deliciousness (wings, chicken fingers, cheese sticks)

    Be very specific with how you want your eggs. Also, if you're thirsty go for the large beverage. The medium is more like a small.
