This place is pure fun with good, old fashioned diner food. First, I love eating in boxcar diners. We have one of the most famous ones, Mickey's Diner in St. Paul, and I miss that. So, you can imagine how happy I was when I found out we had one here in the Tampa Bay area. The place was bustling when we went inside, but we were able to snag three stools at the counter. We were rather amused at the owner who went around performing magic tricks at our spot and all around the diner. He was very skilled at performing his slights of hand, and there were a lot of laughs.
We tried the eggs and hash browns with toast, a burger and fries, and the chicken souvlaki platter. All of the food was very good, but the chicken souvlaki was a favorite for all. This is definitely one place I definitely don't mind driving across the bridge for a weekend morning breakfast.
