I can't believe it took us so long to find this wonderful restaurant. The cinnamon rolls are out of this world...a huge cinnamon roll swimming in butter and frosting! We shared it for my husband's birthday. The hash browns, omelette, sausage and toast were all delicious. We have a new favorite breakfast spot!

My personal preference when dining out is to search out privately owned, non-chain restaurants. I was a former Goodyear resident for many years and ate at TJ's multiple times. When family and friends came to town, this was on the top of our list of places to eat. Although I have been gone for many years, I was thrilled to... More

We stopped in here for dinner because of fairly good reviews on Tripadvisor. My dinner was great, liver and onions. My husbands dinner was not so great, fried chicken. His chicken was overdone and hard. We would probably give them a try one more time. They have great looking home made pies. They are closed on Thursday nights!

Just had breakfast with my husband yesterday. Vist approx once a month. Service is fast and friendly. Every table is always full. The food is exceptional! Quintessential comfort food. Plenty of variety and various combinations to create whatever your heart desires.

One of the best places to eat breakfast in Avondale! It gets very busy so expect a bit of a wait. Farm cooking !

After our adrenalin-rush riding in race cars at PIR, we were looking for a late breakfast nearby. We prefer to frequent locally-owned spots only, so found this one on Trip Advisor. We arrived late morning on a Saturday so understandably there was a line to get in. But chatting with the owner "Don" was great and we didn't wait long... More

We were a party of six, dropped by for a late lunch. The place is a favorite with many locals. It has a reputation for fast service, good food, large servings and very reasonable prices. I have eaten here many times before and never had cause to complain. I ordered a western omelet, and it was delicious. However, two of... More
