not very many places in irvine offer the service offered at this place. the owner strives to know each and everyone of his customers, most of which he knows by name. the prices are out of this world: there are daily specials. example: meatloaf on wednesday night will run you only $7 including soup, salad, mashed potatoes, veggies, and garlic bread!! the decor is fantastic, straight out of history, and a fun place to be.
it's a nice homey gem in an area neighbored by corporatism.
If you want really good service and some decent diner style food then this is the place to go. The waitress we had was the best in town. And the pricing is reasonable. So if you want a relaxing dinner this is the place to be.
