A good small town cafe

Dropped in for breakfast in this small Texas panhandle town. It seemed as though this was the place where the locals congregated in the morning to drink coffee and solve the world's problems. The breakfast was good and the background conversation was excellent.

We stopped by this restaurant after spending the night at the Western Motel, from the clerk's recommendations. The waitress was very jovial, and all of the people in there were visiting and happy. The menu had many offerings and the food was good. We like crisp hash browns, and that cook really knew how to cook them well. The sourdough... More

Good food and lots to choose from. They even have a salad bar! The service is great and they are located right next to the Interstate.

Attentive, friendly service. Appeared to be the locals' choice for morning coffee groups. Food was o.k., but bacon extra crisp and saltier than I'm accustomed to. Easy access from I-40 (same exit as Motel 6).

I am sorry the bacon was salter than you like buy we only use wright's thick cut bacon. I am sorry but this is a top brand that is loved by many. Thank you for your service I will see if there is a reason for it being so salty. Thanks Tracy Kirkland owner More

Had eggs and bacon which were good and reasonably priced. The coffee was a little weak, I like a stronger brew. Waitress was attentive and friendly.

Just passing through the area, we stopped in for some burgers. We seated ourselves and were immediately greeted by our server. I had the jalapeño cheeseburger and it was pretty good, but nothing impressive. The fries were consistently crispy throughout and I liked how they didn't put salt on them. The place itself wasn't impressive by any means either, but... More

Had the hamburger and BBQ Sandwich. Both were very good. Tatar Tots were good, but fries were cold. Quick service, friendly staff. Route 66 find with old fashioned atmosphere.
