We met my airman son here for breakfast on our way back from New Bern. As a local stationed with the USAF, he knew about this place.....you would never find it otherwise in a largely-empty strip-center in a rural part of town. The breakfast was great! Generous portions, unique spicy hash browns, nice variety of omlettes, breakfast burritos, etc. The... More

Back again and disappointed. Crispy fries=nearly burned precooked chicken reheated and served at lunch=dry dry dry. Want it to be good but let down again. Kind of hit or miss with the quality of food.

Good food, but a bit pricy. This place is not so easy to find if you are not a local. Worth the search however.

Wow...so disappointing! We arrived shortly after noon on a Sunday. We waited 10 minutes to receive a menu (no drink order taken). Another 20 minutes later, still no order taken. Eventually, we left restaurant. Tables were full of dirty dishes, but not many customers. Found a wonderful Mexican restaurant downtown! Drink order within the first minute!

This happens to be one of our family's favorite lunch places. Breakfast is delicious, too! Just a FYI, the pancakes are the size of your plate! We absolutely love their fried green tomatoes with the homemade ranch dressing. My favorite thing to get there is the BBQ chicken sandwich. Absolutely delicious! Also, try the Heat Seeker burger. (My hubby's favorite.)... More

Ive been here twice and have been very pleased both times. I had the black n blue burger with sweet potatoe fries the first time, and tried the Fried Green Tomatoe BLT the second... Both are winners!!! The quant atomoshere of this place adds to the charm.

The specials are always good, but my favorite is the Turkey Sandwich with turkey, apple slices, cheese and cranberries. It is like Thanksgiving in a sandwich! The Sweet Potato fries are the best in town!

Oh my. I have reviewed probably 20+ restaurants in Goldsboro, and have found a NEW FAVORITE!! Excellent, deliciously fresh breakfast burrito with fresh cilantro and tomatillo sauce. The fact that this place is thriving, despite a very strange location, is a testament to the great quality of the food served. Yes, I saw pancakes bigger than the plates, and many... More

Went for Brunch on Sunday, and it was great. Unique menu selections, and plenty of food for your money. Pancakes are the largest ever. Our 12 year old grandaughter even got filled up. Friendly service. Not hard to find, on 111 North of 70.
