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

The food is good, nothing special. Service could be better. Prices are average. I usually leave town for breakfast though there is a good Mexican place in the same location.

We take company here if it's on a weekday. It is cute and clean inside, and during the week the breakfast offerings are fresh, delicious and plentiful for the money. We did notice that our plates weren't very full the one time we went on a weekend. Don't know if it was just the cook that day, or if that's... More

I love the downhome atmosphere of this place. The food is what momma cooked (if you lived in the south), and the decor is too cute to describe. Big portions and the biscuits are such that you want to sleep on them at night, with a midnight snack of course. Very worth the visit.
