These guys have been here in my experience for the past 30 years without fail. Any time they're open they welcome you with huge arms, LOL, and they can prepare anything on the menu or off the menu within minutes. They are a great support as well as a retailer in the restaurant industry amongst the local businesses and Duncan itself. If there was a business up for sale, I would buy it!!! In that I hope this falls on receiving ears. Keep going and do what you do you are appreciated

Typical west coast diner serving up delicious meals. We walked in with 14 people (they knew we were coming) and we were served all within an acceptable time frame. Great friendly service.

Food ok but service is horrible. It’s been about 10 months so review is late however they charged my 5 and 9 year old for full meal not kid meal when clearly they are kids and waitress argues after saying they were served adult portions so we must pay. We ordered 2 kid meals and 2 adult meals. Clearly we weren’t ordering a 30lbs 5 year old and 50lbs 9 year old adult portions and portions weren’t even huge. They were chicken strips and fries. We had to argue and they reduced one meal to kids but not the other. Shouldn’t have had to argue at all. Horrible to treat customers this way.

It's a Duncan landmark. Decent fare at reasonable prices. Can be slow at times, bear that in mind if you are in a hurry. One if the better values in the downtown.

I stopped in for breakfast and had the Eggs Benny, came with home-made potato hashbrowns and a coffee. The service was good and the food was above average. I will return again and probably order the same thing, could be the the Benny in Duncan.

We were a table for three for breakfast. Menu was basic but Just Ask for What You Really Want and THEY WILL MAKE IT! Great Mama and Pop type food with no extra charges.Server was friendly, prompt with our requests and always had a full coffee cup. We chose to sit on their patio deck but next time we are going for their bar stool cafe counter.A must try place!

would give them 0 stars if i could i got the "pina coloda cheese cake" which was more coconut than cream cheese. also the whole thing tasted as if they used old cream cheese. would never recomend this place for any kind of dessert was a WASTE of 6.50$ and who charges that much.
