A great breakfast.

A random stop turned into a great breakfast. The staff was fantastic and the food was very good. The food came out fast and hot. The price was what would consider to be normal for a breakfast of eggs, toast, bacon, and potatoes. Stop in and enjoy.

Standard fare standard prices. My reason for the poor rating.... I firmly believe that when you order scrambled eggs in a restaurant, you should not have to specify that you prefer them FLUFFY. My husband and I have eaten here regularly, once or twice a month. One morning I ordered scrambled eggs, bacon and an English muffin. When I received... More

In addition to a large and varied menu, There is a wide variety of daily specials. It is unusual to find gyros on the menu in a small town restaurant. The portions are generous and are not overly spiced. Some meals include a dessert choice--good ice cream served up generously.

Happened upon this local spot trying to find gas traveling on I-55. Parking lot was jam packed. Figured if locals fill it that it must be good. Extremely clean- very polite and friendly staff. Great variety of items- eggs, crepes, French toast, omelette etc... Great coffee too. Huge portions & extremely reasonable. Very family friendly. Don't be dissuaded by parking... More

Great family breakfast. This is your typical small town dinner. The coffee is great, service was good and attentive. The B&G are great.

For a family diner this is a good option - bright and homey. Plenty of options and inexpensive. We shared a full back of ribs that were nicely prepared and flavoursome. The service was very friendly and our wait person very happy to accommodate our 'newness' to American food.

Worst food of my trip. Preformed frozen burger for my husband, microwave steam bag stiryfry for my sister, and elementary school turkey & mashed potatoes for me. Green beans were from a can and boiled until there was no texture left. I asked the waitress what was in the bean soup. Her response, "I don't know...beans." Even dessert was a... More

The food here is homey and we had breakfast. There were four of us and we all had plenty of food. I tried the french toast and it was very good. The biscuits and gravy was very plentiful and my son actually had to take some home. The atmosphere is small town neighborhood. A large number of the people knew... More
