With all of the great reviews, we expected to love this place. It's a truck stop with big rig parking in the lot! I will say that the restaurant is clean, but other than that it is no different than you would find in a highway rest stop.

Home cooked meals, friendly service, in the middle of no man's land. One of the best places in town to stop and eat breakfast or lunch. Convenient from everywhere, close to shopping, lodging, and fishing!

This restaurant, locally known as The Truck Stop, is a staple in Lake Placid. It's a must do for a visitor. Great home cooking. Best burgers, awesome fries and daily specials. You won't be disappointed.

Go there...just go there...Its a local restaurant with a friendly staff in an authentic south central Florida somewhat beat-up, but clean old motel setting. Breakfast has all the regular options, with good potatoes and great off-the-bone ham cuts. Lunches are comfort food Southern style. There are not many places left as untouched by time as this.

Great place for breakfast or lunch when what you want is good food and good service. Portions are plentiful, prices are good, and the waitresses are friendly and attentive. Menu selection is very good - something for almost anyone. Can't beat their breakfast....eggs the way you want them, bacon or sausage, fried potatoes (YUM), and toast or biscuits. All at... More

An old truck stop, not updated. But food is decent and prices are reasonable. Typically Florida; order iced tea and get sweet tea :-) Too much orange and blue (gator fans) for my liking- I'm a Nole- but I'll go back as I often do for breakfast and lunch when we go to our Lake Placid weekend home.

Went with a friend for breakfast. I had two deep fried pancakes with peaches and cream. He had the traditional with two fried eggs, sausage, home fries, and toast. Both were Excellent! Large portions, very reasonable prices, friendly service, and the dining areas were clean.

We ate here many times during our stay(breakfast and lunch). The staff is mostly family and friends that were very warm and attentive to your needs. The food was very good and good portions. Worth the stop!
