    The Thanksgiving turkey platter here is amazing! A nice size portion of succulent white meat with mashed potatoes and baby carrots was perfectly prepared and served. It is on the menu year round.

    Awesome comfort food at this retro style diner. Matzoh ball soup is solid as well as the ALT sandwich. Chicken and waffles is a big item and the chocolate cake and milk is decadent.

    The chicken and waffles are yummy. Put some syrup on the waffles then take a bite with chicken and the gravy. Super fantastic!

    The "Thanksgiving Dinner" is a must-order, with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and some of the best cranberry sauce I've had the pleasure of eating -- and I'm a cranberry sauce connoisseur.

    The Thanksgiving Dinner was so good. Tasted similar to what mom makes! Mashed potatoes were awesome, as were the onion rings.

    The food isn’t too pricy. Start off with the Mac & Cheese and the Grilled Chicken Sandwich and finish it off with the Key Lime Pie.
