Of the places in and around Lisle, this is my favorite breakfast spot. It's not groin-grabbingly-transcendent (probably deserves 4.5 stars especially for the price), but I feel the need to offset some of the negative reviews left by hung over snobs expecting tableside manicures and Starbucks coffee served from 24 ct gold carafes. I'm sure they're not prefect at something, but give it at least 2 tries. It's a quiet little diner with a large menu, and though I haven't tried everything the skillets are big enough to feed a sumo wrestler coming off of a heavy workout, which is to say I always try to finish them because they are so good, but I just can't. Keep in mind I'm the guy who used to eat 2 chipotle burritos in 1 sitting, I used to challenge pregnant women to eating contents whenever I couldn't figure out what to do with an afternoon. The omelets are nice too.
This is by far my favorite diner in the area. It looks like nothing special from the outside, so I have for years passed it up thinking it was probably like a family-owned Dennys. Now that I have tried this place a couple of times, it will be my "go-to" for breakfast and lunch.
First of all, I have to give a shout-out to the awesome waitress there. I am horrible for not getting her name the couple of times that I have been there, but honestly I might come here just to see her. She is super energetic and friendly and really makes dining there a great experience. She will tell you what is good, tells you when you should choose something else and just overall super attentive.
The food is great. I have had a french dip sandwich, soups, patty melts - everything has been great. My favorite waitress told me once that the restaurant insists on using fresh oil to fry their fried items in each day. You can really tell in the taste of their food. They have amazing onion rings - some of the best I have ever had but even the fries are exceptional. I always end up eating my fries first and then bringing home 1/2 of my main entree because I am full.
Overall, a great place for breakfast or lunch. I will be back again and again.
Absolutely a surprise! Have driven by here simply 100's of time and not tried it ... So glad I did this morning!
My waitress was Angel ... Very sweet and attentive and kept the iced tea refills coming! As a person born in the south I judge EVERYONE based on their iced tea - this place was very good and brewed, clear and fresh! And no, we don't ONLY drink sweet tea!
Had the Denver Croissant and subbed fries for hash browns - no charge - fries were hot and crispy, breakfast sandwich delicious.
Table next to me got Nutella and banana crepes which looked amazing!
PLUS free WiFi!
I'll be back!
