Everyone goes out of their way to greet you! Breakfast is AMAZING! Lots of menu items to choose from, also offer daily specials. Please keep in mind that it is a "Truck Stop" Dinner specials were wonderful too! You will not walk away hungry!!!

Noticed there were issues with the cook from hearing the waitress apologize to other customers for mistakes. My husband and I ordered our food and his food was made wrong and mine was also and some was cold. The waitress corrected my husband's food, I...More
