My husband and I came after hearing many people talk about this restaurant. When we first arrived we really like the atmosphere and low lighting inside. However, we only saw our waitress twice. Once to take our order and once to bring our food. We waited almost 20 min for her to bring our check which is when I finally... More

My family, extended to my 82 yr old father have had multiple good to very good breakfast dining experiences here. Service, food quality, atmosphere seen to work well. The standouts are French toast, eggs, very good sausage, pancakes, biscuit sandwiches etc. Not expensive, and way better than poor quality and service you might get at down town Waffle House.

I remember eating here a decade ago while still in college, and it doesn't seem like much has changed. I went for breakfast with my family as we were down for my brother-in-laws graduation. We were sat quickly, although the hostess didn't really seem like she cared if we were there or not. No kids menu and really no speaking... More

If you want cheap food eat here. Perhaps breakfasts here are good, but I don't eat out for breakfast. The food quality matches the price.

Good "home cooking" style items to choose from...nice peaceful (not overwhelmed with loud TV's or music like a lot of eateries in the b,burg area) place to have a good evening dinner (my friends tell me they serve a super breakfast also).....servers were prompt and friendly , great triple choc cheese cake....

the food was very good, but the wait staff could use some extra training....they were polite but it seemed as if they were very unsure what each other was doing and what they were supposed to be doing themselves...

My daughter loves their fried mac and cheese bites, even as a mid afternoon snack! Their waffle fries are seasoned, which is a bonus imo. Good prices and service.

We often drop in here when we have guests to feed and a tight schedule. Today we used their walk up window to order a picnic lunch. This isn't a fast food place, the order (chicken salad sandwiches and mac&cheese for our granddaughter) took nearly 30 minutes to fill. As an after thought, we asked for extra napkins as we... More

My wife and I as well as a retired men's motorcycle group like very much to eat at this local informal place. I typically like to eat where the local's eat if it suits my likes. This mid sized restaurant is on Main Street in Blacksburg, VA....with good parking in large shopping center lot. Here are the things I like... More
