This diner doesn't try to put on any airs of pretension - they just serve great food! Their burgers are extremely tasty and each one is distinctive, their steaks are amazing, they cook an excellent liver and onions, the pancakes are good, and their eggs & bacon breakfasts are yummy and filling. I'm struggling to find anything negative to say about the food... Um, they could put a few more fries on the plate? Seriously though, you're full when you leave and your mouth and belly are thanking you all the way home, what more could you ask for?
The staff are friendly and attentive without being false or intrusive. They treat you like a regular the first time you visit and the more times you return, the friendlier they get. It's like going over to a favorite relative's house for a meal!
The prices are more than fair, they could raise them by a couple of dollars and I'd still be pleased. If you're looking for solid diner-style cooking, especially all-day breakfasts, then this is your next favorite spot to go!

After reading the reviews on this site I noted that only 2 of the 7 were negative. Since there were two very positive and 3 mildly positive reviews, I decided to take my wife there. Now I am wondering what disease of the tongue the positive reviewers had... The food was pathetically poor in quality. It literally was as though leftovers were reheated in a tinned curry sauce and slapped on my plate.
The salad was drizzled with the "house dressing" - a mixture of mayo and mustard... The curry chicken was actually shards of bone and gristle that were snapped off the end of some drumsticks - I spent a good portion of my meal picking bone fragments out of the sauce... Even the fruit "juice" on the menu showed up as fruit flavored soda pop! If I blindfolded a random person who had never tasted Jamaican food and told them to make some, they could have done a better job.
The serving girl tried VERY hard to serve us, but unfortunately I don't speak Chinese and she doesn't speak English, (12 words max.) thus she wasn't able to explain anything to us or even understand any of our questions.
A meal for two cost $25 and would have been overpriced at half that price. If you value your time, money and stomach do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.
