Walked in to have breakfast and took a breath of cigarette smoke. Guess the door to the smoking area doesn't help. We quickly retreated out the door before we smelled like smoke. Cannot stand to be in smokey areas due to allergies but hate the thought of smelling like a cigarette butt all morning.Wish Oklahoma would enact non- smoking in... More

Only open for Breakfast and Lunch. Breakfast is very good. Hamburgers are very good for lunch. Chicken Fry is pretty good too

I was looking forward to eating here. We heard from people around town it was good. I don't know if we went on an off day or what. They have a "smoking room" but there's no reason for it the whole place was very smoky. So, I left with a headache. Probably won't go back. If you're I'm McAlester and... More

Other reviews were right on. Inexpensive, good food, and excellent service, and worth stopping if you are looking for something other than the normal McD . My husband and kids enjoyed it.

If from out of town you'll have to find it as it's not on the "Wal-Mart express way" part of town but much better than anything out there!

the food was very good, brought to us by a cheerful waitress. excellent coffee, but the downside is, in trying to accomodate EVERYBODY, the place reeks of cigarette smoke even in the non smoking section. this would be a very decent and affordable place to recommend if it weren't for that pall of disgusting smoke. ashtrays and food? bleaack!

Have been here a few times over the years. The prices are fair. The breakfast meals are huge and delicious traditional American diner food. Service is good. The dining room is small, but they have an adjacent smoking dining room, if you need that. We tried several of the omelets, and all were good. Have eaten a burger or two... More
