“Family fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

Stopped here for lunch on our overnight in Wickenburg. Home cooking, nothing fancy, but tasty and plentiful. Super friendly staff who truly are having a great time at work make it fun. Old time decor and view of the street make you wonder what year you are really in. Worth the stop for nostalgia.

“Traditional American breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

This place has a lot going for it, excessively (genuinely) friendly staff, parking right outside along the street or around the corner, glass front so it's very bright and you can watch traffic and passers-by from your booth or table. The atmosphere is more 50s than modern, which, IMO, is charming. Ok, the furnishings are somewhat dated, but so what. The cafe offers all the traditional breakfast items - maybe don't go there if you're on a diet - it is heavy on the fat and cholesterol side as it was in the days when nobody talked or even knew about these issues. It's not gourmet food but it satisfies the stomach for sure, as protions are very ample.
The place is favored by many bikers, as indeed, a sign says Bikers Welcome - bikers and everybody else.

“Large portions but quality was lacking!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

We had been spending time in Sun City West this winter and read about this place in a tourist publication touting the wonderful sausage gravy and fantastic breakfast items.
The portion for a half order of sausage gravy was indeed too much to eat however the gravy was made from a dehydrated mix which wasn't very tasty. It had one fairly large triangular piece of sausage in it and it was served over a very large biscuit which was rather dense.

My wife ordered a bacon and cheese omelet with hash browns and a biscuit. The omelet was overcooked and scorched on both sides. There was a lot of bacon and cheese inside it. Her biscuit was also very large but very dense as well.

Coffee was good, water was served in cracked and chipped plastic glasses.

Just under $20 dollars without tip which was pretty high when comparing with a first class restaurant.

The dining room was "shabby chic" but our booth seats were so broken down they provided pillows to sit on (and they are very dirty). Server was friendly but very busy, owner stopped by to pour coffee but she was concentrating on a table of local customers who were obviously regulars.

Sorry to say we were disappointed and won't return.

“Just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012 via mobile

Went there on trip advisors advice had an omlete, hard to mess up eggs, bacon was raw not many hash browns omlete a little toasty. The place was down home alright but my home is not the back woods. Won't eat there again hard to find a good place to eat in this town have tried it several time bad luck each time. Trying to figure out who sends in the great reviews from restaurants in wickenburg, must be the owners.
