On vacation for the first time to Williamsburg. On our way to church, we saw people standing outside this restraunt. After church, we joined the locals waiting for this great food. We were not disappointed. Everything we had was delicious. We are going back again this summer and will probably make a point to eat here again.

I looked this up and read the reviews, we decided to go for a late breakfast about 12:00 pm because they serve breakfast until 3:00pm. We order, (me) 2 eggs combo with link assuage (recommended) and corn cakes. It was GREAT! My hubby ordered omellet with corn cakes, another winner! We don't eat breads but couldn't pass up the corn... More

Great food and service! You can tell when you go in that this is a local place that the local people love. You hear people being called by name and knew what they always order. Some of the things we ordered were opened face turkey sandwich, meatloaf, and a hamburger. Portions were big for the money. It was a great... More

Honestly...the service was wonderful and our waitress was outstanding. The food was good, the banana pecan pancake was delicious! I say it was ok because it was just not the cleanest feeling place. The bathroom was gross which made me question the kitchen. I don't really care if the building on the outside looks questionable but I want the inside... More

This was an experience. It is just a simple restaurant with excellent food, great service and prices that are unbelievably low. We all had different orders and every one of them was just great. Service was fast and it was crowded on a Sunday morning. We recommend it without reservation. Just remember your order is going to be huge, so... More

I have eaten at this restaurant over a dozen times in the past year. The master cooks, Michael and Torie, can whip up the best breakfast in the Williamsburg area. Eggs done any way you like, generous serving of crispy bacon, excellent biscuits (or try a fluffy pancake as a substitute), and home fries. The service is quick and friendly.... More

Agree that the food is pretty good, but it's not out of the ordinary. Service and ambiance are sub par so not sure what others see here that' so great. It's really not.

Love this spot for breakfast. The banana pecan pancake is fantastic along with the link sausage. My daughter loves the biscuits and gravy. Be prepared to wait outside but it's worth it!

Recently discovered a hidden gem on ironbound and john tyler hw. This place has it all from a house made corned beef to a great burger! Even the cherry pie was just like mom made!!! The service was exceptional and our food was served very quickly and hot! If you want a fantastic meal seek out this place! We will... More
