Traveling thru this area we stayed at Hampton Inn within walking distance of this restaurant. It was a recommendation of Hampton Inn. Simple outside and in and clean we were seated promptly and given a sample of warm vanilla pudding. What a treat and good marketing. The waitress was nice and efficient with our order. It did not take long... More

Clearly a family-run place with a good spirit and pride in their food. My dinner was simple and basic but very tasty. Warning - the "small" portion of fries was huge!! Didn't have any room for pie :-( I watched staff greet customers with warmth. Very convenient location to the Best Western (could easily have walked). A very pleasant experience.

I have a lot of respect for this restaurant. It would make a killing if it was open Sundays. But because of their religious views they decided to keep it closed. That's is a lot about the people that are running the place. Restaurant seems to use fresh ingredients, not boxed. Homemade mashed taters and gravy meal, grandmas cooking tonight.

Good place for a quick meal - sit down, order your meal, eat, and head out. Great for families as the value per meal makes for a reasonable tab after a breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We ordered the Crispy Chicken Honey Mustard Salad and an order of Chicken Wings. Both meals were plentiful and the wings were huge!!! - love... More

The kids weren't use to "warm pudding" but liked it and were glad that they tried something new. It proved to be a great, "how do you do" free appetizer. There were families, couples and singles that all seemed happy, welcomed and enjoying their meals. Teens loved the hamburger combo with fries and shake. Randy's offers malts but none of... More

My husband and I walked across from the Super 8 for a home cooked meal and we were not disappointed - we had the hot pork and beef sandwiches. Kaleb gave us excellent service, and the restaurant was obviously well supported by the locals. The bread pudding was fabulous. In all, an excellent choice for a meal while staying in... More

Pretty typical family restaurant fare, though they do have some odd specialties such as chicken gizzards and chicken livers. I guess it has historically been a chicken restaurant. They provide a free taste of warm vanilla pudding as a welcome gift. That's kind of cute. Breakfast is served all day, so I had steak & eggs with hashbrowns. Eggs were... More

We stopped in here for dinner on a road trip thru town and it was right across from the Super 8 we stayed at for the night. We were greeted in a very friendly manner and seated right away. Our waiter Kaleb was very pleasant. I had the Philly Cheesesteak which was amazing. If any Canadians reading this review are... More

Wow what a helping, we had the specials and they were from the days when you got a full plate at most restaurants which is not the case anymore. Well, here you will get a whopper of a serving and like most not be able to eat it all but they will pack it up for you to have later.... More

If you like Chicken Gizzards, this is the place to go to. It has been years since we have visited this place, in fact the last time it was called the Chicken Hut. The place has been remodeled and the menu changed, but they still offer deep fried chicken gizzards with potatoes, toast and a salad. The price has gone... More
