excellent lunch, good location

Stopped in based on TA reviews; we wanted something non-fast food, and close to the interstate. We had a burger, patty melt, egg rolls and dumplings--all were excellent. We all decided the egg rolls were the best we had ever had. Prices are pretty average.

Good ol American breakfast! Service can be hit or miss, but the food is always tasty! Great place to meet up with friends the morning after a night of drinking.

The food was above average and the service/waitress was pleasant and attentive = excellent. Was short on time, on way to airport mentioned the fact to waitress and service was fast. The Dragon of the reviews "owner is rude..." And "Business" listed under "terrible" reviews seems to still be there walking around with a plate of food and eating. Probably... More

Good food off the grill, hot, tasty, and served with a smile. No pretense of being something that they're not! It's a regular drop in place if it's between 10am and noon.

I have been there twice. This second time is the last time. The food is good, the place is quiet and the staff are very nice. The one problem here is the owner. I nicely asked how fresh the caramel rolls were. I was going to take one home depending on when they were made. A woman came out from... More
