Small town cafe. Great burgers & fat fries, hearty breakfast, lots of menu choices. Reminiscent of a 1960s diner. Popular with the locals.

My whole family loves the food from this fantastic cafe. We get breakfast burritos from there every week when we are in town. Haven't rain anything bad there.

Fantastic Cafe is a nice char broiler burger place typical of the area. They have limited seating with a standard burger joint menu selection. The pastrami sandwich is better than average but nothing to rave about. The place is always clean and usually busy. You order at the counter and pick up your order at the counter when it is... More

They have been around forever, its the third generations now serving the counter. Basic burger and mexican dishes are my all time favorite.

My family and I love the breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros, waffes and pancakes. Service is always fast and friendly. The food is very reasonably priced. We eat here every time we visit.

It's decent...not the best, not the worst. We eat there once a month/every other month as it's close to home and easy. Filling and cheap!

I have been here many, many times. Sometimes the food is pretty good, while other times it's horrible. I guess it depends on what you get. My boyfriend likes the bacon burger or blt. I prefer their breakfast. Call ahead, makes it a lot easier. Staff is pretty friendly.
