You will not leave hungry. If you're looking for a down-home breakfast, you have found the place to go.

Was looking for a brunch stop and was hoping to find an independent joint. We stopped of here, thinking it looked independent, but were wrong. That said. The staff were friendly and the food fine. I wouldn't be searching it out again, but it was fine and nothing that you could say negative about. Just very average for me.

We go here from time to time. Always for breakfast. They only serve breakfast and lunch. Both are very good. The service is good the food is good and you get plenty of it. Sometimes it can be very crowded especially on weekends. I dont think they take reservations. But its worth the visit.

I'm not one to complain about food. I noticed when it came out that my hash browns were frozen fake potatoes, the gravy was from a can, and the eggs were not cooked with anything on them. Salt and pepper can make almost anything taste good, but there was a severe lack of any seasoning. My fiancee ate two bites... More

I don't know how these guys stay in business. The service is some of the worst I've ever experienced at a restaurant. We stopped here because it was close to our hotel. The food should embarress the owner. These people won't be in business long if they don't change their ways. There are too many good places to eat to... More
