In years past this was THE place to go for breakfast and lunch. It's gone steadily down hill. I miss the days when you would go there and you could get a delicious meal. Now it's a crap shoot if it will be good or not. Kinda sad.

Great food at a reasonable price. We went for lunch, I had the BBQ pulled pork with fries and pop, my husband love breakfast and is able to get that all day long here. The wait staff is courteous and efficient. The cooks are fast and the food comes out hot. We frequent this place often.

People's has nothing to recommend it. The food isn't particularly good or noteworthy. The service is so-so at best. When you are tempted to stop, just keep going.

Sometimes it is hard to get the waitresses attention, but keep at it; the food is worth it. Only have had breakfast here, but we drive 30+ minutes for it!

Thursday excellent home cooked REAL turkey dinner. Great comfort food. Do not forget a piece of pie (take home as you will be full) Best assortment and quality pies anywhere. Local, privately owned restaurant.

Just like Mom used to make. Great variety, fabulous service, quaint and clean. The ribs are worth the trip...so are the chops and steak.
