Very good French Toast

This place is what I would call your prototypical highway diner-- down to the shiny exterior. I stopped by for breakfast and had the French Toast with bacon and an orange juice. The French Toast is delicious and I would highly recommend trying it for yourself.

Slow service, facility is dirty and is in big need of new carpet! I've gotten up to leave several times. I do not know why I keep giving it a chance.

I have only eaten here once but it was very good. We ate on the patio in the unseasonably warm December sun. I had the grilled Pimiento Cheese with chips. YUMMY! It was homemade and warm and gooey. And our server was warm, funny, and prompt! I MUST go back for the pie.

I stopped at the diner for a late breakfast before resuming my drive up north to NYC. I sat at the counter where I was immediately greeted by two cheery waitresses. The bacon and cheese omelette was delicious and very filling, especially with grits. A yummy biscuit also came with the meal and made a nice snack later. When I... More
