best biscuits and gravy ever!

This great little mom and pop cafe has been a favorite for a long time as the hubby's 'retirement club" used to meet there. Recently, we stopped twice during a 5 day stay an loved it both times.

Tucked back a little from the road, absolutely worth it! Great prices, huge portions, excellent coffee! You couldn't ask for more in a Diner.

I stop in here just about every weekend. I try different things on the menu every time I stop in. Nothing to complain about the food. It's very good and they give you enough. Staff is very very nice. If there is something I personally want done to my meal they will try everything to prepare it the way I... More

I tried ham and bean soup which almost approached average and chili which was thick and tasteless. I had the second bowl of... More

There's nothing fancy about this roadside truck stop. Diner style restaurant . Nothing fancy about the food or the taste. Service is fair! If you looking for cheap food in a place you can sit and drink endless coffee and read the paper this is the place

My wife, mother in law, brother in law, and I stopped here on the way back from a wedding in Western PA. Although this place isn't super easy to find and is in a nondescript building, the food and service are phenomenal. I had roast beef and cheddar on a croissant which was delicious and the roast beef was a... More

After we drop the kids at school we go to Mary's on Friday mornings. We have various friends join us. The breakfast is always very good and a lot of food. I usually get am omelette with no potatoes and haven't been disappointed yet. Coffee is bottomless too.

Always liked family restaurants. Found this one nestled off the main road. Happy I found it. Mary was very nice and friendly. Had spaghetti delicious and good price. The place wasn't that busy so we had our meals real quick. Will be back nexyttime I am in the area.
