Huge portions of food

As the young crowd would say, "OMG!" The meat omelet is the biggest I had ever had out. Wish I had took a picture but was just in shock. Very good flavor! Very filling! Also came with hash browns, toast, & they offered hub cap sized pancakes but I had to turn those away. Just too much food! But... read more

This place is always good. The food is wonderful and they always have a special for $5.99 or so and it is always good. You can't beat the prices or the food. The only bad thing is that they close at 2 so you can't have supper there.

Went today. Cute restaurant. Coke was flat. Big portions of frozen and/or canned food. I had the freezer-burnt chicken fried steak with brown gravy, flakey mashed potatoes, and canned green beans. The gravy tasted over-salted and I tried to scrape it off. I should have known when I glanced in the kitchen and saw the huge boxes of instant mashed... More

We ate here for lunch and althoughbthe portions were large, the fiid was only mediocre. I specifically asked if the mashed potatoes were real (not instant) and if the chicken fried steak was freely prepared. The server assured me that they were. When I received my food, the mashed potatoes were not only obviously instant. .but also room temperature. The... More

Phil's recently moved to this former restaurant when the Howard Johnson motel closed and what a step in the right direction. It has a homey feel (in an old house) and the food and service are beat only by the price. $5.99 for meat loaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans and enough to take a meal home. No wonder the...

I ordered a single egg special with pancake and sausage. I know there were about 3 scrambled egg on my plate. Pancake was gigantic. Husband got hashbrowns and the order was about 3 of what Waffle house gives you. All was delicious and service was great, but they do need more wait help.
