This ain't no health food place. If you're wanting to watch your girlish figure, this might not be the place for you. But if you are looking for great food, huge portions, lots of variety, and friendly service, I'd say step on in. We stay at the nearby motel whenever we visit this area, so we've eaten at Paul's Place... More

This is a great place to pick up breakfast. Larger portions that are great for sharing if you are not too hungry... or great to fill up on the morning. Not bad for lunch or dinner.

Really nice diner, big menu, good service, clean restaurant. Laid back place, great for couples, and the entire family. The prices are super reasonable and the fun is good. We give it two thumbs up :)

I love going inside or drive through, the quality is the same. They have a great variety of food for the entire family. Their portions are big enough for my teens and give me two meals in one! Absolutely the best onion rings ever!

Stopped in for dinner with husband and 4yo son. Not many options for kids. The single burger was massive. Menu was overwhelming. So many items to choose froM, portions are massive and no one finished their meal. I say dial down the options and portions and that should allow you to lower cost a little. Like I said was good...

The menu has a variety of different things and the prices are reasonable. I just wish they served breakfast items psst 1100. The service was good and real plates and silverware were better than fast food. I liked my fish tacos

While in the area on business, one of my client’s recommended this as a location to try out. Situated on a corner, it was easy to get to, and there was plenty of parking (although my college and I had to cross the drive-thru lane to reach the entrance). There was a large amount of rose bushes at the front... More
