Lunch date with hubby

Stopped here for lunch on our way back from Midland. First thing I noticed was the roomy, clean restrooms inside the front door. Found a seat near the back and was waited on right away. Ordered our food and within 10 minutes it was delivered to our table. The food was great, the burger was made... read more

My husband and I tried Lanny's for the first time today. We each had the Lanny burger, a cup of homemade chicken noodle soup and shared an order of fries. Everything was wonderful. The wait staff was excellent (Thank you Ryan) and the locals were friendly. We will definitely be back to try some of the homemade specials.

Where the locals eat... good food, good prices, small town atmosphere. Stop in for breakfast for the best deal, but food will be plentiful whenever you go. Cinamon raisin toast complements your standard breakfast. The wait staff is friendly and typical of small town cafes everywhere.

Ate at Lanny's for the first time yesterday: One special was Scalloped Potatoes with Ham. It was EXACTLY like the recipe my mother & I use. Awesome! They had actual REAL roast turkey with made from scratch dressing, too. I had the homemade chicken noodle soup and it was homemade; even the noodles!! Friendly & very competent staff. Nothing fancy,... More

We go to Lanny's often and always enjoy it. It's a pretty typical small town cafe...very clean with friendly service. The menu offers a wide selection and the food is good--breakfasts are very good and they have some nice selections for lunch. It can get busy during lunch and breakfast, so allow a little extra time.

A diner frequented by the locals. Lots of choices. Cheap breakfast specials served before 11:00, great coffee. Had a burger,fries, and slaw and thought is up to standard. Saw the hot roast beef sandwich/w gravy. Spouse said meat was not moist and the gravy looked and tasted canned with instant mashed potatoes. Saw mac and cheese (special for the day)... More
