We were in a group of seven adults and seven children the food was a little bit cool when served but this could have been because they waited to bring everyone's food out at once. One adult had to send their food back to be warmed up and my fried eggs were a little under cooked but other than that... More

I don't think we have been here when it was not crowded, but it was worth it. Great breakfast! You'll be glad you went.

Awesome food, hands down. I have been here on different occasions and this is my go place for breakfast. The staff are friendly and attentive. If you're in the area, stop in and try the cinnamon dipped french toast. Just talking about this is making me hungry......

Quintessential hole in the wall understated building with mix of hipsters from UNT and families. Large portions of quality comfort food. This is my "go to" chicken fried steak and eggs, biscuits and gravy place. I shared with my son last visit and both of us were full and worthless afterwards. There is usually a line on Saturdays and Sundays,... More

Went here for some breakfast. The place was packed which is always a very good sign. The breakfast was a good serving and the service was always around checking on your status. Nothing really stuck out but nothing was bad neither. It was a very safe place to eat. They stayed with the basic breakfast options and kept everything as... More

This is the place for breakfast and lunch when your belt no longer holds up your pants. Guaranteed to let you remove suspenders as the quantity and quality of food is tremendous. I like the steak and cream gravy with eggs, potatoes, and hot coffee. But dont overlook lunch and chicken fried steak or hamburgers or meat loaf.

Thank Aggie B
