“Night on the town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

we only waited about 5 minutes to be seated on a Saturday night. Good service, good food and the atmosphere is family-oriented. Staff very friendly and accommodating.

“Plan to have dinner here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

This restaurant is busy but the 15-20 minute wait is well worth it.The staff are very attentive you are served a mini loaf of bread while waiting for your meal. Depending on which side of the restaurant you choose, the salad bar is included with your meal....and it is well stocked with 2 types of lettuce 3 soups/chili and numerous pasta and veggie salads. Fruit and mufins also are on this bar.The other side of the restaurant is same menu, you only get a salad with your meal, but you can order breakfast any time The food was delicious and came out piping hot and fast.. We just happened to be in the area and decided to try it. It was hard to get a parking place, inspite of all the people it did not seem crowded, and we did not feel rushed to eat and leave. Unfortunately we were so full from the main course we never had room for dessert ..We were heading south on our vacation, on the way back home we stopped in again. I have already reccomended this restaurant to friends.

“Too much swine used in their food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

For those who don't eat unclean things. Make sure you ask what ingredience is in some of their foods. When you eat a piece of their homemade pies, your consuming lard in their pie crust. When you get white gravy with a chicken dinner, its white sausage gravy not chicken gravy like mom makes. Pork pork pork can kill you. Wake up & ask what's in the food your eating.

“Down Home.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

If you want to enjoy some down home cooking with a full-on unbutton your pants salad and soup bar. The chicken is fantastic and known throughout the area as the best fried chicken in the land. Moist and delicious. The egg rolls are an odd menu addition, but are also excellent. Remember to save room for pie, or as we do take one home for later. A great stop for travelers on 57 or 70. You'll be in and out quickly. If you want a local favorite for your road trip stop here.

“You have got to stop!”

Awesome price, tenderloin sandwich, waffle fries and a dessert for under $5! The place was hopping because of the great food, price and everything!
