Not Consistent Food Choice Wise

Normally we patronize the I-10 West location in Houston. This time we went to The Woodlands locale. The pancakes I get at one location is not available at another. This may sound trivial but my point is this. If you carry the same name/logo etc., customers expect the same choices. This was... read more

I love pancakes and bacon, so that's what I ordered. The bacon was good and the pancake was fluffy. I only ordered one, as I decided to try the "city grits" also. The grits were ok. They are cooked with gouda cheese and topped with diced tomatoes and bacon. I think they would have been better if they were served... More

I eat breakfast or lunch several times a month. It's a "go to" place for those living in The Woodlands, north of Houston. Always great service and good selection for breakfast, bunch or lunch. Enjoy the variety of specials of the day.

We have been here a few times before today, but since our last visit - service has gone down hill! Waited for over 40 mins for a table that they gave away to someone different after we turned in our buzzer and gave us a table that didn't fit our party - even longer of a wait. Waited for almost...

Food was mostly breakfast things, the basics was great but soup sounded good but was sent back due to taste and being cold, they did refund it with out asking.

I was very disappointed in the quality of the food. Many of the items on the plate were prepared before hand and tasted just the way. Bacon was barely warm and the same with the potatoes, they tasted like they have been setting in the warmer for a long time. The eggs were just ok. My daughters eggs benedict had... More

This is our go-to place to eat after church almost every Sunday. We've been going since they opened so we have probably eaten everything on their breakfast menu and some off the lunch menu upon occasion too. They have a wide variety of ways to serve (real) eggs - all good. The bacon is cooked to order; we like ours... More

If we eat out for breakfast on the weekend, this is the place my wife and I go 99% of the time. Food and coffee is great. I really like the variety of things on the menu that aren't normally on the other menus. My son and his family eat here quite often even though they live 15 minutes away.... More

There are lots of savory breakfast options but if you are looking for sweet this is probably not the place. I love pancakes and was disappointed that they only had whole wheat so I went with French toast. Overall the food was fine but nothing special and it was a little bland. The flavored coffee was good but the "bold"... More
