What a breakfast should be

Really enjoy this place. It is old school with a ton of charm. The staff are so nice and remind me of my mom:) The food is good and the price's are awesome. This place might not be for everyone but it is totally a place for me!

Small place but big taste! Buffet that literally has all of your favorite southern comfort foods: fried chicken, green beans, Mac & cheese, peas, chitlins, mashed potatoes and many more! Desserts include several fruit casseroles and southern pies. Well priced @ $7 per adult, incredible customer service. We'll be visiting here many times to come. Can't wait to try the... More

We were driving by and decided to stop for breakfast. The service is quick,friendly and a great example of teamwork. There is a menu and a buffet to choose from. We tried the buffet and we're not disappointed. All items were fresh and hot. This is real home cooking. Fresh scrambled eggs not bagged liquid eggs and many meat choices.... More

My husband and I have breakfast dates normally twice a month (used to be every week!) and have visited Toot-N-Tell several times, giving it several chances to convince us to come back. The last time though we sat there and wondered what the draw was to this place. The food was average, bacon was under cooked, and it was nothing... More

This was my first visit so I did't know what to expect. We had a great time. We chose the buffet. Our server told us that the fried chicken was great. I waited until a fresh batch came out and it was amazing. I met the owner - third generation family business. Worth a visit for a southern meal at... More

Country cooking done right. My wife and I have had breakfast here several times now..The food is great, the staff is friendly, and the business has been around since the 1940s. Check this place out.

If there is a reastaurant that will take you back to another era more than Toot-and-Tell I haven't been there. This is a landmark of Garner. The food is classic old scholl southern restaurant faire. This place really takes me back to my youth growing up in the not so urban South.

If you like southern cooked food, then this should be on top of your list. The breakfast is really good and the lunch/dinner menu's carry traditional southern food. The building is quite old and pretty dingy which really takes away from the experience.

Doesn't get much better than this - food, service top notch - they care about you like you were family when at their restaurant! We had two meals there and will have more anytime we are in the area.
