“Has Always been a great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

just about anything you order is going to be good... i have been coimng to this resturant for over 15yrs now and have never been disappointed. even after the owner switched over to join one of the mainstream affiliates. In short the food, service, and quiality has remain the same, great... its not just a truckers haven as some think that just past through, it has always been a breakfast, lunch, dinner favorite if many of the locals for years too.... So stop in when you have a chance... also, go to travel store and check out there grab and go menu of ribs, cheeses, fruit, etc... just about anything for when you dont have time to sit down and wanna grab something and keep going..

“Terrific Food & Friendly Folks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

The food was delicious! My husband had a grilled chicken sandwich and I enjoyed the salad bar. Don't miss the fabulous cheese biscuits - to die for! Everyone was so friendly and we will definitely eat there again whenever we are in the neighborhood! Truckers have all the good places!! Excellent value for the money!

“Good "down home" trucker food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

The person at the hotel front desk recommended The Iron Skillet and said that it was very clean and the food was good. There is a full menu as well as a buffet. Now, I don't usually eat at buffets, but most people were, and the waitress said it was good, so we decided to give it a try. For buffet food, it was very good. Staff was continuously restocking food and keeping everything clean. If your will-power is better than mine you could have salad and veggies and baked chicken -- or you could go for the fried chicken or steak which you could top with country gravy, huge smoked pork chops, shrimp and grits; not to mention the mashed potatoes, butter beans, etc., and finished by pound cake, bread pudding and such.

“A Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

At lunch my culinary companion had Grilled Chicken Salad with a Blue Cheese dressing that was in and of itself fantastic. The chicken was fine, and everything else in the salad was very fresh, using field greens. I had the Chili Burger, and the chili was fantastic, worth it's own visit, while the burger tasted of filler and looked to have been assembled from a serious blender setting. I kept soaking out that thing in chili juice and ketchup from the nice fries, and made my own happy meal.
Service was attentive and of good cheer.
