We went in, sat down & were asked for our drink orders. The drinks came a little while later with menus & no straws. Then we watched as several tables of customers (who arrived after we did) were served drinks, menus & then their orders were taken. We were looked at several times during all of this but never waited... More

Close to I 75. This place has hot coffee and the usual breakfast options. The exterior and interior are dated - it is clean. We found the service good, fast, and friendly. If travelling through the area I would stop here again.

We pulled up to an franchise type building on 301 in Dade City with low expectations and were hugely impressed! Now I see why the locals recommend it. Ignore the plain, no nonsense table set up and sit down and order. The menu varies from Barbeque ribs to fried catfish, burgers and sandwiches. The portions are very large and they... More

I was told that this was the BEST BBQ around...hmmm. The only BBQ on the menu was a pulled pork sandwich, and a couple of plates that offered "2 bones" with one other thing, side were extra. As a southern BBQ lover, when I want ribs I want more than 2, and anything over 2 was an extra charge. I... More

A group of five of us were here for breakfast. The food is nothing fancy, but it was edible. Unfortunately our server was simply terrible. She brought a few plates out, then a while later a few more plates, and then a while later, finally the last meal. So, some people were eating while others were watching and waiting. When... More

My mom and I eat here weekly, usually Friday night so she can have the catfish. The food is always served fresh and hot, has the home made taste that we like. We like many other things on their menu, including the Club Sandwich and Pork Chop Sandwich which is reminiscent of the pork tenderloin we used to enjoy in... More

Mostly very good food, but the dining room has become consistently dirty: crusty tabletops, crumbs and sticky stuff in the seats, rarely swept floors, plus poorly maintained restrooms. I hope they can manage to maintain a comfortable level of cleanliness soon.

The food overall was good; except when my father asked for the ribs without the sauce and they were not fully cooked through. The bathroom for the... More
