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

We were passing through and the GPS came up with this local diner, so we stopped for lunch. We prefer the local culture experience over lunch at a sanitized national chain. The food was quite good and the portions were generous. The tuna melt was a bit sloppy but delicious, and I had a side of sweet potato fries that... More

I stopped in because a prior reviewer mentioned good blueberry pancakes. Well, I have to say they were really poor- Bisquick batter with about twenty berries. Must be a different cook. Coffee was a disappointment and the sausage was way too salty. Should have tried somewhere different. Interior was nice, and so were the bathrooms.

I have eaten in this diner many times....and maybe a review like this will wake them up... The place is dirty... The waitress...and I do not want to be mean...was unwashed and wearing a filthy shirt. Our meal....all three of us...left with our food untouched....the waitress....could have cared less.. Maybe it's more of a local joint...and the diners are just... More

This small diner is wonderful. Great food for a greatprice. Homestyle food or something alittle different. Service is great to always friendly and willing to go extra mile for you. Great breakfast.. big enough for anybody. Lunch specials everyday and dinner too. Desserts to die for.
