Stopped in for dinner. I had Pork Chops! Great Meal. Chops were perfect and even tender. Nothing bad to say about Circle E.

We stopped in here for supper while passing through the Hancock area on a long trip. We were really glad we chose this restaurant (we picked it because the parking lot was pretty full and there was a great food smell coming out to the road). We wanted a tasty and inexpensive supper, and we got it...plus large portions as... More
