Not bad

The food here was fine, nothing especially remarkable, but not a bad stop. The service was very quick- I only waited for about 5 minutes for my food. Prices were appropriate for what was served.

The food was great here and the portions were huge! I could tell it was a family-run business and the woman managing it was very friendly. The inside of the establishment and menu were outdated, but it was good, nonetheless. Their house-made Greek dressing is out of this world!

The menu looked 30yrs old. I ordered the chicken strips and my husband the BLT club. The reason this place is still running is because of the hand breaded and fried chicken. It was done just right. My side salad was wilted bagged lettuce. Ick. My husband's BLT "club" was three pieces of bacon,paper thin tomatoes and wilted lettuce. It... More

Not fancy, but the food was good. We had roast beef dinner - very tender meat with mashed potatoes & gravy (which seemed to be the real thing) and a vegetable. Our friends had vegetable soup and a hamburger. The hamburger sandwich was big and they said very tasty. Service was good. It's a convenient location, on the edge of... More

Huge omelettes and lots of hash browns make for a giant breakfast! Nice service as well. Pleasant atmosphere.

I disliked how my food was cold and terrible!!!! The cook was touching the people coming in and sitting down.

Ask the staff what comes with the items on the board. Some entrees listed come with more than others and you may not know or you may not get told. (And I don't think the restaurant looks like the picture that is shown above.)

When I walked in I could tell this is the kind of place that gets food out of the freezer and puts it in the fryer. I was right but it was ok anyway. Not a lot of food choices in this town. Portions were huge and prices were low. I had a cheeseburger and it was ok. The meal... More
