“Food just ok”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Not much to say about this place. The food was unremarkable. Not very tasty. Won't likely go back. Ok for elderly who don't want much flavor.

“Almost Mayberry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I stopped her for lunch at closing time one weekday afternoon. There were a few locals lingering. It was a fun atmosphere watching people visit and the staff clearing out the place for the day. Super clean with basic food you'd expect Andy Taylor and Gomer Pyle to enjoy at lunch. Almost throw back prices too. Less than $5 for a sandwich with Iced tea. Sparkling clean restrooms too. Wish I'd eaten here before my last day of 10 in the area.

“Don't miss out...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

on their "nearly world famous" chicken salad! The chicken casserole is really good as well.
They are closed right now due to a fire and I sure hope they open soon because I miss having lunch there.
Small town restaurant with home cooking for breakfast and lunch.

“Small but superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

Get their tenderloin buscuit for breakfast. But get there fast because they won't last long! Tea is so great
