Hard to beat eatery

The service is excellent and our breakfast was very good. We used the Senior Menu and had more than enough at a reasonable price. Great stop off I-80 Highly recommend I ordered Grits with my omelet and received the real deal and not instant.

I ordered the Monte Crisco sandwich and I had never had it before. The food was fresh, hot and so delicious !! I had to take half home because of the portions... Only thing I was not real thrilled about was the price but it's not terrible. Just a little out of my price range.

Service was beyond excellent. My partner asked that croutons be withheld from the Caesar salad, so was offered fries as an alternative to the bun. Then, when she drank only half her iced tea, she was offered one to go. The salad was big and tasty; my burger was cooked to order and fully dressed with fresh tomato etc. Couldn't... More

Quick Service and Good Breakfast was my experience for breakfast. Lots of choices- great Senior Menu if you're old enough! Easy access off and on the freeway- Wish they still had the minced ham and scrambled egg breakfast for two that was so popular many years ago!

After a busy Saturday morning Sweetheart and I decided to eat out for breakfast at Black Oak. (We used to come here years ago, and order the BEST fajitas for dinner.) We ordered from the Senior Menu; the Cinnamon Raisin French Toast for me and Sweetheart chose the Honey Date Nut Bread and Eggs. Both came with fruit salad and... More

I've been going to the Black Oak all my life and have never had a bad meal. Dropped by just the other day. Had a fantastic Cobb Salad. Tons of toppings, all nice and fresh. My mom had a club sandwich. It was huge and good. Came with soup too, which she loved. Definitely a good place for lunch, and... More

We've found that this restaurant's offerings run from average to very good. The flavor and presentation is like "Home Cooked" meals. (Breakfasts and lunch, dinner) opposed to the "chain" coffee shops and diner meals that all have the same flavor/taste. Home style cooking.

After reading the reviews we were excited to stop for breakfast here then disappointed that we hadn't gone elsewhere. It was crowded so we sat at the counter and had an unsmiling, rather robotic waitress. I ordered my favorite breakfast dish, corn beef hash and it wasn't nicely shredded as I'd thought. It was served in a pressed down, greasy... More

Oh man....went in today for the first time after having driven by this restaurant 100s of times over the years... Our server was hard to understand and was quick to assume things (it was actually entertaining for us about as much as it was frustrating). I ordered the Irish Benedict (it's THE reason we went in for breakfast there this... More
