Located off of Veterans Memorial Parkway it’s a great location for those that live or are visiting the south side of town or a nice stop before or after a trip to some of our Southside attractions like Monster Mini Golf, Exploration Acres or Wea Creek Orchard.

If you are in the mood for breakfast, I love their omelets! They are a nice size, filled with plenty of vegetables and meat and the eggs are fluffy but thin at the same time, just how I like them. You can actually taste the filling and not just all egg. They are served with potatoes (I like the hash browns) and choice of toast. If breakfast isn’t your craving of the day try one of their salads, soups or sandwiches. They have great burgers and tenderloins. I’d recommend choosing the potato salad as your side; it was fabulous! My husband is also a fan of their chili and, no trip is complete without a peanut butter milk shake for dessert! It is awesome! Beware though; even the small is pretty large. It is so worth it though!

The atmosphere is fun as well with the black and white tile floors and a counter just like you would expect to find at a diner, although booth and table seating is also available. They just recently expanded as well so now you can take even more of your friends with you! They almost doubled their seating space! The restaurant does have quite a few regulars that the servers know by name and will automatically know their favorite drink and sometimes meal. I know my Dad and his friends are some of the regulars. They are retired now so many “local joints” around town know them. The group enjoys eating and chatting with friends and what better place to do that than a restaurant where you don’t have to clean up the mess. Ha! They know many of the local area restaurant's best specials and which day to visit those restaurants to get that special. Oh, to be retired!
