“Funky diner that is an old wooden Art Deco diner. You’ve never seen anything like it! Menu offerings are staggeringly large and artery clogging, but maybe one visit won’t hurt? It’s very small so go early to avoid waiting for a seat. ”

“If you want to order pizza or try their HUGE strombolies give Mamma's Delight a try. It's your typical corner pizza shop, but the do make their own bread. Subs, or as we call them hoagies, are pretty good as well. ”
