My husband and I had a late lunch there the other day. I had the grand burrito and my husband had some kind of chicken dish. When my food finally came it was cold. We won't go there again.

My wife and I eat here quite often, the Gold Pan breakfast (2.99) is an awesome deal. This is our place to go for a casual cafe style lunch/dinner. Very friendly staff good comfort food. Recommend this for tired travelers who just want a good meal at a good price with friendly people.

Best night to go is Friday all you can eat Prime Rib for $9.99.Fast service and great food We also ate breakfast here 5 times while we were in the area. You can't beat the $2.99 Gold Pan Special.

Eggs cooked beautifully (over easy) and Home Fries made from real baked potatoes (you... More

To be fair I havent been there in years- tried it several times and ever time greasy, cornbeef on rye, can figure out how the got the bread soaked in grease. My stomach just could not deal with it. I have friends that work there and I still dont go.
