Good home-style cooking.

The entire family loved the cinnamon rolls. We have enjoyed the home-style cooking and have returned several times while in K.C.

OK -eaten here on multiple occasions for brunch, lunch, dinner etc. I have never had a bad experience. Just good old fashioned home cooking with some great comfort food. Great value and a nice atmosphere. The wife loves it.

If you want comfort food, "home style", lots of bad-for-you food, they have plenty. It's the type of food that will hit you hard and keep you full for the day. If you want to get carry-out food, don't waste your time. Our office is nearby and for that reason (and the lack of many other options) this place has... More

Busy place on a Saturday morning, but worth the wait. The friendliness of the staff is beyond compare, along with the food. Grits were just right, eggs perfect and corned beef hash was flavorful. Coffee mug never got below half a tank.

Had heard about this place for years. Took out of town guests for a great breakfast. The fabled cinnamon rolls and sticky buns were gorgeous, but the cinnamon roll was raw in the middle. Enjoyed watching the baker make the rolls, tho. Server was very pleasant, but was over-committed or the kitchen was super slow getting our orders out. Coffee... More

Home style country type restaurant. They serve breakfast all day. We both ordered the open face pot roast with mashed potatoes. The meat was very well flavored. The menu stated a generous portion, I wouldn't really agree with that statement. Service was very friendly and attentive, but not overly so. They are known for their bake goods. They have daily...

Biscuits and gravy delish as always. Service was also above average. You should also try their cinnamon rolls. HUGE and equally delicious.

This is comfort food. Great selection of home cooked style favorites including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and desserts. The decor is fun to look at with lots of old signs, etc. While we visited at off peak I hear it's packed at peak hours for both lunch and dinner so you may want to plan accordingly. The menu has something for... More

We eat breakfast from the Corner just about every Saturday. My wife loves the Gringo Omelet, and eats half the biscuit with jelly for dessert. I mix it up with something different just about every trip. Everything is as close to home cooked as you can get when your Mother, or Grandmother isn't around to fix it for you. If... More

This is the best family owned restaurant any where. They serve the best Biscuits and gravy you will ever eat. Also try the Huge cinnamon rolls.
