Good Breakfast

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... read more

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

This is one of the best places we have enjoyed breakfast while traveling this year. Great food, (try one of their omlets), and very friendly staff. Nice hometown food and service!

Pontiac Family Restaurant was a good place to stop for breakfast. There were many choices on the breakfast menu. There were several picks for Seniors. Service was quick and the meal was great!

We eat here quite often. This restaurant has a wide variety on their menu, so no problem in feeding anyone in your party. They also have selections for kids as well as for seniors. The wait staff is always friendly and accommodating. The best part is they are located right off of Rt 66!! Travel the mother road but stop... More

Came to this restaurant because they are a supporter of the Rt 66 restoration effort. We were glad we came here. Had a good meal for a very reasonable price. Mostly locals as the staff seemed to know almost everyone. Very nice selection on their menu. Would stop here again.

My wife and I live in Pontiac and eat at Family Kitchen regularly. This is nothing fancy - but it is clean, comfortable, homey, and you will not fine more friendly management and staff. The service is always above average. They have an extensive menu - maybe the best selection you will find in the area. We regularly have breakfast... More
