Typical truck stop food. Staff were friendly, place was clean, prices were great and food was good. Fries are fresh cut chip stand type fries which were great and homemade nuggets which my daughter loved! Kids liked the truck decor inside and the cool sign. A nice spot to stop on your way though or if in the area. We... More

You can't miss the truck perched on top of the sign in front of the restaurant. It certainly drew our attention, and that's why we stopped there for breakfast. We had omelettes, bacon and toast. The meal was OK, but nothing special. The coffee was good and the service was friendly but very slow. When you are on a road... More

Terrible service, terrible breakfast and terrible prices. My pinch full of homefries tasted like fish (change your frying oil), the waitress should retire or get people skills training (a smile goes a long way) and the breakfast was way over priced. The best part of the whole experience was LEAVING!

A 2-star breakfast, but with a 4-star price. Very rude wait staff (the rudest I've been treated by a waitress in a long time !!!) was just a bonus on top of the underwhelming meal and unavailability of poached eggs. Unique décor hides the mediocrity........

Meals are very good, home cooked, some days are very busy and hard to get refills on coffee or water, but that's understandable, friendly service.

I chose this restaurant to take my adult students out for a meal. It much resembles mom's cooking on both the ambiance and cuisine fronts. Having called ahead to book a table, the owner made her way to us when we arrived to introduce herself and thank us for coming. The food is something worth writing home about! Perfect breakfast...

I;d probably give it a 5 for the clubhouse sandwich and fresh cut fries and the bottomless cup of coffee, but I didn't think a truck stop should get such a high rating but it was great for that type of fair!

Food was sooo good and there was so much on the plate we couldn't finish. Our server was excellent! Very reasonable prices and a menu that would suit anyone.

This truck-stop themed diner was a fun place to grab a hearty breakfast on our way south. The decor is just too cool. Looks like a truck is coming right through the place.
