“GREASE PIT OF SLOP”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

Come on guys, do you really like this SLOP!! I have seen better food in WWII prisoner of war camp movies This is a run down grease pit . It is only Home made cooking if your mother is a 17 year old pimple neck kid, for there is not a person working in this place over the age of 20. The food is tasteless and deep fried. The hamburgers, and chicken are all standard pressed meat, straight from some factory, with throw it on the fryer as your perp, and served with a smile. So, if this is what you want god bless you, just make sure there is a bathroom nearby.

“Great Southern diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011 via mobile

The food is consistently great and worth waiting for. The shakes and malts are large and yummy. The macaroni and cheese isn't worth it.
