I work down the street from this diner, and in an industrial area it's nice to have somewhere close and dependable on-hand. I've been there for both breakfast and dinner, and the value for the quality of the food is tops.
They have very good soups and intriguing, delicious lunch specials (even when they're not quite customary: nearly everything comes on fried rice, from barbecue to a very untraditional "souvlaki"), and the service is efficient and never intrusive.
I've ordered a few different things here and the ingredients are always fresh and high-quality, with real cheese and good vegetables.
The decor isn't fancy, but it's clean and airy and comfortable enough for a quick meal if you're not getting your food to go. A great little secret in the middle of an industrial jungle.

I stopped in here once on a whim, and despite the lack of ambience (cheap peeling booths, dusty raffia fans and fake flowers, etc.) the food was scrumptious. My friend and I ordered chicken cutlets and were rewarded with two enormous breaded panfried cutlets on a bed of seasoned rice, which we both tucked into like wolves and still found ourselves with enough left over for us to both have for lunch the next day.
It was good, simple, tasty food and the best part was the dish of homemade peppersauce on the side. I grew up in the West Indies so I like some heat, and the peppersauce tasted like the ones I like best -- not just heat, but savour as well.
Unfortunately, after dreaming about that chicken cutlet for a week, my friend and I went back and found Jubba's had shut down. That was a couple of years ago. Quelle dommage!
