Renee's is a great place for breakfast or lunch. Portions are huge and the service is excellent. For breakfast I love the hash with a grilled muffin on the side. For lunch I love Renee's homemade soup and a BLT, but there are lots of good options.

We found Big Shirl's just driving by, and from the look of the parking lot and crowd surrounding this place we had high expectations! We were right about our instincts and were seated quickly.

Big Shirls offers good hearty breakfasts and always has a couple of specials that make me want to try something new. For a sugar rush get the cinnamon bun french toast.
