Great homemade desserts

Great place to go for a great piece of homemade pie or cookies! Low cost breakfast location where all the local seniors like to hang out in the morning.

This restaurant has a great variety of foods to satisfy most pallets. The deluxe tenderloin is my favorite. They have burgers, fries, appetizers, chicken dinners, half and full rack of rib dinners, hot turkey and beef dinners and much more. They have daily specials and some of the best homemade pies you have ever tasted. The restaraunt is very dated... More

The food is good they have the best chicken dinner around. The interior is not the cleanest. I always feel like I need a shower after being there but the food is great so I will go back.

Has a very good breakfast menu, sandwiches, omelets, platters. All hearty and a great value. Their donuts and rolls are excellent. You order and pay at the counter, they give you a number and you sit and wait for your food to be delivered. There are mostly booth, but towards the front there are some round tables that will sit...

This is a good little dive with an apparently big following. I had lunch here and the place was full. The burger and onion rings were OK but the homemade strawberry-rhubarb pie was excellent. The DQ in the front throws you off a little if you never been here. It's NOT a DQ but there is one separately in the... More

I had the mashed potatoes and chicken noodles meal. It was tasty. I also had a piece of rhubarb-strawberry pie. It was excellent. We have eaten here several times before and the service and food have always been excellent. While the booths are out-dated, I did not go there expecting a fancy restaurant atmosphere. I went there to eat, not... More
