Small Town Treasure

The welcoming staff and the delicious food make this restaurant an exceptional experience for a small town in a rural area. The "Jeff salad" is one of my favorites especially for lunch. Don't forget to save room for dessert - yummy.

We were traveling from visiting our son and his family in Topeka and returning to East Texas. We were tired of fast food on our travels and we discovered this gem. They were serving their dinner menu and the chef prepared a the most delicious Eggplant Parmigiana, one of my favorites. The restaurant was cozy, clean and very friendly.

I travel a lot but when I'm home this is a favorite lunch spot. Usually good service, friendly people.

We've eaten here a few times when visiting my mother. She's in a wheelchair and the staff is always very accommodating. The food has always been very good.

My boyfriend brought me here while on a weekend getaway. I was surprised. I had looked at pictures online and didn't have high expectations for the place to be honest, but he raved about it so I agreed to eat here. I am so glad that I did! The pictures did not show the true atmosphere of the restaurant. In... More

I have eaten here twice. They have fabric tablecloths and paper napkins. I ordered the spaghetti w/ marinara sauce and the lasagna. Both items appear to be premade, especially the lasagna. Kind of like a quality frozen dinner, but not priced that way. Service is barely adequate to take the order & deliver the food, nothing more. I would not... More

We love this place! This is where we take all our out-of-town guests, and they have all loved it, too. Great food and atmosphere.

We've eaten here a few times. I would rate it a 5 - but I don't like the spaghetti / marinara sauce. To me, it tasted pepper-hot, vs just flavorful and savory. I prefer their other dishes, which are very good. The service is good, and it's a clean, pleasant place to eat. If you haven't been, do go and... More

This place has really good pizza. My son had the spaghetti and didn't like it at all. But he is a picky eater so next time we are there we will just get them the kids chicken strips

I had the lasagna and my husband had the chicken pasta primavera. (Not sure of the name) They were both delicious.
