the WAIT is WORTH IT!!!

My boyfriend and I came here on a late Sunday morning (around 12pm) as we read the great reviews. We saw the very long line that starts inside and ends outside: about 30 people minimum. We were kinda scared as people were standing even outside (the benches to wait were full) but then we decided... read more

This little diner was the best choice! We just googled breakfast places near us and this popped up. They were sooooo friendly, on point, and food was good. The best part was how great the coffee was! Typically these places make their coffee weak but it was perfect. My son LOVED the train that went around the ceiling. He was... More

We found this place and I'm glad we did! The service was great thanks to our waitress Miriam! The blueberry muffins went well with the coffee. It's a good local place. My only problem would have to be the host a bit on the annoying side and seems to be bothered when checking in. He basically tells everyone it's a... More

Great service number one. But the way the staff greet you is with smiles and a basket full of fresh muffins. The wait time here starts by 8:00 am every day it can be anywhere from 15 minutes to.45 minutes. But worth the wait the down home cooking is worth it. They open early and close by 3:00pm. Enjoy

The food isn't anything special, but it's good. First visit I had migas & refried beans, second visit I had pecan pancakes. Both were very good. This family-owned business has been around since 1958 - it's a warm, busy environment, with very friendly staff and dependably good food. I was visiting family and they told me they go there about...

Andy's serves free hot muffins with breakfast while a model train circle's the dining room ceiling. The food is good. Booths are cosy. Get there early before the crowd arrives.

Love it here, don't mind the minimal wait, it is worth it. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, Andy's is the epitome of the go old fashioned "Family Restaurant! Prices are great, and you can not beat the free mini blueberry muffins that are served before your order gets there! Love Andy's Kitchen!!!!

i like to eat at the counter as I enjoy the "regular" customers. AK has the best homemade salad dressings in town. I can stay on my diet there as they work with you. It is the best!
