Excellent Home Cooking

We pulled in hoping for a decent meal and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. The food was served hot. The burgers were not greasy at all and the staff was very friendly. The sweet tea was true southern sweet tea.

This is where the locals hang out. The specials are written on the white board daily and include cat fish most days. The food is plentiful and the most reasonable place in town to eat.

We took my family there tonight. They were ok with it. The salad is great. They do need to do something with dirty glass doors. It's close to where we live so I order to go. The service is horrible if you go on Friday night. We went tonight and they have the same fish special as on Friday nights... More

Going for breakfast? Lots of people, from the guys who go regular for coffee, to the truck drivers, utility workers, lar enforcement, early workers in the area and couples. Lunch is the same as well as dinner. This is just a nice older home style restaurant with plenty of seating. Older motif but clean. When you see this many people... More

Wonderful hometown restaurant. Great food, good value. Friendly staff. Atmosphere is warm and friendly. Down home decor is unique but that just adds to the charm. We recommend LP Family Restaurant on all levels.

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!
