This place is the freakin Bomb! There is no other way to put it! everything is homemade and Fuckin Incredible! It looks and acts like a local Diner, Butttttttttttttttttttttttttt Don’t let it fool you! This is down-home Comfort food cooking at it’s finest!

Try the Frozen Hot Chocolate! It challenges Serendipity for the title of the best! I also had a BBQ Chicken sandwich, I believe they put it on a wrap for me. Homemade makes a giant Difference! I had something else i thought it was rice pudding, but I’m not sure, but whatever I had it was Amazing!

They Love the Military and have a Giant wall of Military Pictures of local Men and Women in the Service. I still owe them a Picture! (If you are reading this: I had Shoulder Surgery and I am still recovering. I didn’t forget you!) The Owner (Homer is a Former Navy Seabee) and there is a table with his nameplate on it, but he doesn’t sit there! he always sits on the end of the bar! lol Everyone is so kind! His Daughter has taken over and she is really really nice! So is everyone else there.

This is the (not sure of the name) colossal burger – its 2 1/2lb burgers piled sky high with lettuce, tomato, onion rings and I can’t remember but I think bacon too!! It’s crazy! The bun is huge and it’s like a giant Big Mac in the fact that it has a second bottom bun so 3 pieces of bun.

Ps I killed it lol.


Sorry I already had a couple sips haha
