If you have a liking of cookie jar collections then this is your place, they line the dining room. That has nothing to do with the food, I'm assuming, but it is different. This is one of the best old fashioned local places that you will ever find. The dining room is small and there can be a wait. Stick... More

We eat here every time we come to Mountain View. The breakfast is great. The chocolate gravy they serve on Saturday mornings is the bomb!

Terrible. Flys were everywhere both dead and alive. I lost my appetite. All the vegetables were either our of a can ior frozen that is billed as "homemade". Worst meal I've ever had.

The food was good and hot. Prices were fair and reasonable. Waitress was friendly and helpful. The Elvis stuff impressed my wife. Best food we found outside our Bed & Breakfast.

We tried this place based on it being the #1 restaurant in Mtn View. In my opinion, it was just average. We seemed to have a server that never wanted to check on us. We had to keep asking other waiters or go & stand by the kitchen when we needed something. We arrived right after breakfast stopped & my... More

I love to eat at this place. The breakfast has all the favorites and I never leave hungry. The lunch special are a good value but being able to get breakfast anytime makes this place special. As of my last visit they still only except cash and checks no debit or credit cards.

Their menu has some unique breakfast items too. Service is prompt and friendly. The only problem is that it is impossible for me to predict when they are open. Like... More

The restaurant was packed on a Saturday night, but we managed to get in and out quickly in time for the drive-in movie. Our waitress was very friendly, and our food came out quickly.
