Just Like Home Is Just Terrific!

Delicious, tasty food with a huge variety of menu items! What a delight to find such well-prepared good food in a lovely surrounding. Restaurant is spotlessly clean and how refreshing is that. In a time when so many dining places today are predictable or are chains with the same old menus, Just... read more

Huge portions, delicious food, great service, fair prices -- Just Like Home is the perfect family-run, casual restaurant. They have been in this location for five years -- wishing them many, many more.

Had breakfast here and the staff was very friendly and the services was great, always made sure we had coffee and always with a smile. The food was also great and for the price you get a lot and even one of the owners stopped to make sure everything was fine. Will be going back for sure.

I took a group of 20 women for lunch. We had the private room and the service and food were better than we expected. Our waitress (Terry) was most accommodating when the ladies all wanted separate checks. Comments on the food were all positive. The room was bright and cheery and everyone had a lovely time. Prices were well within... More

We came to this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend. We were 3 adults and 2 children and they took care of the children very well. Their drinks arrived in sturdy plastic cups with straws and flexible lids. However there are only four selections on their children's menu. The adult menu had a wide variety of food, including Greek... More

We've gone here many times and found the food very good. Not necessarily a "destination" place but just a nice family restaurant. Owners very cordial and price reasonable.

Excellent food at very reasonable prices! Atmosphere is relaxed elegance (and very clean!) and the waitstaff was extremely friendly and attentive. We loved it! All our food arrived piping hot and delicious, not to mention that we all had to take home our leftovers because of the huge portions they serve. We highly recommend Just Like Home for breakfast, lunch... More
