We chose this place because it was the only non-chain eatery off the exit. Basic small diner. Small enough that the smoking/non-smoking section distinction was meaningless. Burgers seemed to be from over cooked pre-formed patties. We certainly won't be making a special effort to stop at this exit on the way home!

We like to try local eateries - so gave this a try. It is not fancy but was clean on our visit. The service was OK. Looked like mostly locals the day we ate lunch. Reminded me of older truck stop - think the bldg. was perhaps once a Waffle House. Our family tried steak and BLT. all was good.

This place was not very clean, and the food was at best edible. The service was not great. I would not recommend this location.

This small place may surprise you. We have been here several times before and we love their prime rib and ribeye steak dinners. They have a very reasonable price and the service has always been good. We have never been disappointed when we have ate here.

The restaurant is small, dirty and smoky. The steak is of low quality. The rib eye resembled corn beef and the filet was similar to sirloin. Even the Pepsi tasted weird. All reviews speak of the low cost but 3 meals with 3 drinks, an appetizer and tip came to $60.00. I don't think that was cheap for such a... More

This is not a chain. I have been here and their rib eye's are a killer. They are very reasonably priced and every guest that I have referred to this place and eaten here had nothing but praises for this restaurant. They all said they had too much food for the price they paid. The service is southern hospitality at... More

For such a small place the food is wonderful and the prices are great. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed with the food, service or the price. We will go back again and again.

Rude staff, no ambiance, mediocre food. Can you say "dive?" But, at $11 bucks for a steak I suppose the price is right.

"Best meat/steaks in the tri-state area for the money. Additionally the salads and rolls are the best. Overall, I will place the overall quality of the restaurant against any I have ate at all over the world. I have traveled Canada, all over Europe, Most of S.A.,India, Korea, Vietnam to name a few places.

I stopped in here on my way home from visiting family in KY. I got the prime rib sandwich which came with a side and a salad. The prime rib was perfect as was the baked potato which i got loaded with butter, sour cream, cheese, and bacon. I loved the little crissant roll that came with the salad andhad... More
