Top notch! Good old home cooked feeling. Great place for the whole family. Crowded
means good, fresh, and worth the wait. If you liked your Mama's cooking, you're gonna like the food here....

Derrick Bassett

I love this place. Good, well seasoned American food. Down to earth place... I am looking forward to the next time I can order and try something else!

Kennedy DuPray

Wonderful diner, have eaten here many times, everything is good. From the lunch specials to the weekend brunch buffets I have never been disappointed. Everyone that works there is always smiling and happy to be there. A favorite!

Margaret Finneran

I've been eating here all my life. Hands down, the best Sunday brunch for your money in the area! Mr. Euripides is one of the nicest restaurant owners I have ever met and he is up in age, 90-ish, and is still at work most days!
