This was a very nice family restaurant that shut down when Suzy retired. Some of her family and workers opened up at the old Jobs cafe in the 200 blk of East Central.

Good food! Very fresh and nice place to eat! Waitress are very nice, the only thing I would change about the place is the rude attitude of the cashier lady. She is always rude but the food is good and you dont have to interact with the cashier except on your way out!

Generally, I used to go for the pie. Now the lady that made them homemade, doesn't. The place is dirty, the food is awful, and prices are way too high. The service is poor, and the last time I ate there the food was burnt, the time before that, they "closed the grill" almost 45 minutes early. Don't waste your... More

Good service, quaint little restaurant, excellent iced tea. The chili was just like Mom makes, but since I always added ketchup to Mom's chili, it's not my favorite. It's a perfectly fine style, but just your average home-cooked chili with beans. I got what I thought was the day's special (grilled cheese on sourdough with cup of soup) but subbed... More

I don't know what the one bad review was about because they do not charge extra for water or soda refill. There most certainly was no drunks when I was there. I have gone there many times and have found the food great and the service wonderful.

My husband and I have lived in the area for nearly 10 years. This little cafe opened up at this location about three years ago and has a steady stream of customers. Very clean place with good service. FABULOUS chili - a "small" cup comes with a square of thick, hearty cornbread and is a meal - for $3. Stick... More

Great for families, not entertaining for young adults. A family only type resturaunt. Though it used to be a classic hangout for the whole community.
