We saw this local gem while driving to our hotel. My husband said a full parking lot must mean good food, and he was correct! The breakfast menu is extensive and is served all day. We ordered breakfast skillets that came with choice breads or pancakes for under $10. There was more food than we could eat and it was homemade, hot and delicious. Nice crisp golden brown fried potatoes with perfect over easy eggs on top of the skillet. The next visit was brunch. Same price range and meal came with a nice bread basket and a large bowl of wonderful soup! The wait staff was very friendly and efficient, but it was the owners who really make the place special. They both came and spoke to us at length and made us feel welcome. Knowing we were from out of town they made suggestions of places to go and gave directions. The second day they remembered us and welcomed us back and inquired of our previous days adventures. You can really appreciate their pride in ownership, hard work and how they have become part of the community since purchasing the restaurant in August. We are so glad we happened into this place!

Great place to stop for a quick but delicious breakfast. Stopped here to eat before we headed out on a 3 hour drive to go home after returning from a long vacation. The reviews that we read did not disappoint. The service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious and portions were generous I grew up in Park Ridge but moved away before trying out Macs. Anytime I am back in the area, I will head here to eat!

Tiny little diner with about 7 booths and barstools at the counter. Owned by a Greek family so you knows it's good. We had the Denver cheese omelette and Greek feta omelette with everything. Service was quick, the food was delicious, and the family is super friendly! The amount of food you get is quite impressive and well worth the trip. While this place is small, it makes a really BIG impression!

We have gone here several times. The service is fast and friendly. The food is good. The portions are big! This visit was for breakfast. The ham and eggs was good choice. Our coffee cups were never empty. Their Potato Pancakes are delicious!!

How fun! We took our granddaughter and sat in the same spot we took our son over 20 years ago. Just the energy and the excitement made it a sweet memory to have. I wish I got the name of our waitress, young light brown hair in a bun, she was great with all the kids and had great patience. The Happy Birthday song is fun and the choo choo is exciting for all of us to see the food delivered. Everyone came over to ask us how everything was. The blond hair young man in the kitchen looked like he enjoyed his job and the food was quality.
