Great Casual Dining Break on your Road Trip!

First of all, the service (Barbara) couldn't have been nicer. I think all of the servers have a similar attitude. The food was great and came out just as ordered. Nice portions too. We enjoyed the experience!

This place is great for breakfasts. It might be good for dinner if you like pork or beef. There are a few seafood selections and virtually no chicken or turkey selections unless you like it on top of a salad or breaded with pasta and pasta sauce. Come on juicy's you can do better than that?

We ate here tonight and we couldnt have chosen better. There was a huge choice of food so even the most difficult customer could find something good to eat. The staff were very friendly and helpful even though they were extremely busy.

Traveling through and decided to stop for breakfast and Juicy's filled us up for the rest of the day. Giant portions, tasty vittles and friendly service. Our son wants to stop in again the next time we pass by. Omelettes are fluffy and full, bacon is thick cut and crisp and the hash browns are cooked just right. Recommended to... More

Stayed next door at the Best Western. That gave us 10% at Juicy's and a free breakfast the next morning. Food was good, they even gave my wife a sample bowl of their soup to see if she liked it before she ordered a full bowl.
