I used to come here years ago for lunch and it was great. Now. Service is not good. Food was not very good. Got a burger, came with no condiments and fries took extra time. Sad to see, but this place has gone down hill. Also, never go for breakfast Sunday. Unless you have 2 hours for eggs..

Got up late and found this restaurant in town, advertising ALL DAY BREAKFAST. Good. We went in and decided on the breakfast with 3 peameal bacon, hashbrowns. Also got coffee. As the title said, the peameal was so thin it could have passed for shaved deli meat. I've never had paper thin peameal. And 3 of the tiniest slices. This... More

Located right in the downtown area, park in the free city parking area. Lots of food choices, really fast service and very reasonable prices.

the food is okay, the service slow, the atmosphere reminds me of a truck stop, nobody knows each other, the friendly banter between customers and staff is gone. not cheerful at all. way over priced. never again.

We were there a couple of times when we were in Minden. The food was quite good and well priced but the service was definitely an issue. The first time there was confusion with their "new" system and our order didn't get placed. It was at breakfast and we weren't in a hurry so had no issue. Breakfast was great.... More

The food was fine, just fine, but the service was terrible. We went on a Wednesday just before 12:30. We had to ask for menus, we had to ask for drinks, we got out food at 1:19 and we had eggs! We had to ask three times for coffee, the third time was me going to the counter to ask... More

3 servers were milling about 8 ft from me and no one said hello or took an order for 10 minutes. Had to repeat order, ask for coffee and again for refill, and no one cared to ask how I enjoyed the meal. Food's okay. Service is lousy!!!
