Brunch Surprise

Spur of the moment decision to try this little place - one of those hole in the wall dives, serving pretty good food and generous portions. Obviously very popular, as people were lined up outside and it was a pretty cold day! Reasonable choices for Vegetarians.

The food is disgusting. I found multiple hairs in it. The place is dirty. Don't waste your money here, trust me. The owner came to our table and was extremely rude. Watch out for the grumpy old man. Definitely not worth it.

The staff was very friendly and the steak and cheese sandwich was fantastic. The side of fried okra that came with the sandwich was such a generous portion that my 6'4" son couldn't finish it! The gyro was excellent made so by the great meat and homemade tzatziki sauce! Great food, staff and value!

Be prepared to wait as it is usually packed, but you won't be disappointed. The food is good home cooking with a "Flair". The Fries are very unique here, and the Country Fried Steak is a favorite. There are always specials in addition to a large menu.

The breakfast at Five Forks was good, but not great. The grits weren't warm and the gravy was just okay. The biscuits would probably have been more impressive without that gravy. Bacon was a little chewy. On the plus side, our server was quick, courteous and professional! The place was busy, but she was on top of things and our... More

I gave it 5 stars for its category- Diner/Cafe. Do you want a chain, well polished, generic meal....don't go here. It is a family run, local joint that would highlight on a show like Dives, Diners and Drive-ins. Depending on the time or day of the week, it can be slammed or you might be one of few guests. I...

We visited on a very busy tourist weekend...but were seated immediately. Slow service was understandable...they were packed! When our food arrived...it was absolutely worth the wait! Amazing home cooking!

Great little dinner near Jamestown. The five of us had a variety of items off the menu including the chili cheese burger , gyro, Ruben and fried okra. All were great! Will definitely keep on the list.
