I had never tried this place despite driving by it for nearly 5 years. It's an older place on Wadsworth Ave between the Light Rail Station and Colfax Ave. I think it's an old gas station or oil change store. Anyway, when you walk in, you're greeted by a very friendly hostess and she's friends with so many of the customers. That tells you right there they have amazing service. Not only was the service spot-on but all of the staff was friendly. They're super busy but pay attention to their customers. It's a crowded diner and nothing fancy. The food is good and comes out fairly quickly. Everything seemed cleaned and orderly. I'd definitely go back again!

This is an awesome place to eat! Brandy our server was the best I’ve had in a long time. A great mom and pops place. Danny the owner is very attentive and cares about his customers! It deserves more then 5 stars!!! Food came out hot and was right. No complaints from us!!!

One of THE BEST little local gems around town! Danny is a great host and always with a smile. The food is consistently yummy, great portions and a great menu selection. The servers are also friendly and awesome. This place gets busy on the weekends so bring your appetite and your patience. The wait is worth it! ? #SupportLocal

Excellent beautiful and friendly service. Food was a little bit slower to come out than other places but was very well worth the wait. The food was so good, I know that I will be back many times.

Unbelievably prompt and pleasant service. Your coffee cup doesn't have a chance of being half full. The entire crew is always pleasant, present, attentive and efficient. You can hear the chefs laughing and I always see them smiling. They should be smiling as they put out plate after plate of generous delicious portions. Danny and his wife even get a chance to hug occasionally which makes the love they show for us Moe sincere than ever. Love good food, great value and superb service then get to Danny's today!

Reasonable prices, senior menu there's a plus. Only one bad experience during Covid when we were asked to leave to free up the table. Should not be done in any circumstances

Everyone who works here is a character, everyone has a witty retort to your questions. Everyone is having fun. It's like a good dive bar but they serve breakfast. Yes, the food is great here but it is the friendly ambiance that earns this local diner 5 stars from me. I walked in for a late weekend brunch and after some friendly banter at the counter, I settled on a Ruben. It was great: lightly grilled rye, sliced corned beef, thousand island on the side. It satisfied my sandwich craving at the time. However there's so much more on this menu I want to try: the Skillets, The Cuban, the Breakfast Burrito... The friendly staff said next time I return you'll have a chance. I didn't have it in me to tell them that would require a 4-hour flight. But perhaps I might hop on a plane sometime so I can go to Lakewood and sit back down at that counter for a friendly meal.

Never knew this was an eatery, until recently. Parking is tight in the front and more open in the back. Pleasantly seated quickly for brunch in a full place. A very diverse menu and those can be worrisome if not properly equipped. Early bird specials, daily specials, kids and senior menu, all day breakfast (yay!), diner comforts, Italian and Mexican foods. I had the chicken fried chicken, friend one had Thursdays special of beef tips over noodles and friend two had the breakfast chimichanga. What the what......?! Two large mirrors made the place look huge.....took hungry persons almost 20 minutes to realize that one. I digress. Other dishes coming out looked very yummy. Food came out quick. My CFC was great with the extra gravy, friend one liked the BT&N,(Only a couple tough beef peices out of like 40) and friend two enjoyed the BC,( Green chili was too hot for F2, but we enjoyed it.). Check came at a good finishing time and check out was efficient. Persons, food and service were great here. We're going back for more. This one wants blueberry pancakes!

First time there last weekend and it was packed! Waited 20 minutes for our table but it was worth the wait. The dining room was a bit crowded and hot, but the service was great and the food was delicious. There's a wide variety of options on the menu so you're bound to find something for everyone. Danny works right alongside his staff and was very friendly. He made us feel like regulars or family even though it was our first time in. We were seated directly next to a couple of regular patrons and they were also super friendly and raved about the food! We will be making this a regular dining destination, for sure!

Wow, you guys, this place sells homemade sloppy Joe's! I have come the last 2 weeks in a row because I have missed having a home cooked meal since Covid, and it reminds me of a time when things moved at a slower pace. You can only get them on Wednesdays though. ;) The staff was very acomodating and welcoming each time. I will be back for sure!
