Had the joy to finally stop in at this family diner. We live about 30 minutes from it but usually travel at least a hour or two for food because we are bike enthusiasts (to say the least lol) Coffee cup stayed full and hot, waitresses were absolutely amazing, so kind and attentive. There’s a great feeling walking into a place and automatically feeling the positivity from the whole staff. I ordered the Western skillet and it was phenomenal. (And it really comes in a metal skillet, not just a plate like a few other places I’ve encountered) Real sliced cheese is placed under the eggs for a perfect melt and cheese pull every bite, loaded with fresh jalapeños (I personally love heat) not to mention the abundance of diced ham, onions, hash browns and green peppers also. My boyfriend ordered the colossal omelette and lord that didn’t disappoint either. Plates licked clean to say the least 😂 After our first visit we’ve decided we will be stopping here regularly and so glad we found this gem of a place. Highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
