We visited this establishment before we hit the road back to our home state. We had a bit of a wait due to the Sunday Morning rush, but it went rather quickly. The service was very good and the food was good. By the line out the door, this place seems to be the place to go for the locals.

A real must made there daily true homemade banana cream... More

The menu is vast and I finally settled on the fried chicken which was very good. It came with a potato and vegetable. My friend chose the Reuben sandwich and was extremely happy with her choice. Entrees come with a cup of soup. The chicken abc soup was ok but tasted starchy. The cream of mushroom soup was very good.... More

This place has by far the best Steak Skillet Deluxe I've ever had! Breakfasts are delish, and prices are reasonable too!

Quality, quantity, flavors, and service are very good. It also offers a discount birthday price of 10% off a tab with the birthday postcard it mails every year.
