One of our favorite breakfast locations in the area and the best part is we can avoid having to drive into Columbia. I always order the Classic 2 egg breakfast with bacon and a side of hash browns,its huge and filling and with a drink will only set you back $10. The dessert cooler is always full of delicious looking... More

I wonder why the hangover hash browns got rave reviews. They reminded me of The Waffle House. We waited an hour and it would have been longer if my husband had not addressed the situation.
