The service was good but the food I ordered didn't care for. I had Biscuits and Gravy and the Biscuits were a little hard. Otherwise the overall was average

Ate breakfast here with a friend a few times. Quite good. Not quite the best in town, but close. Consistent. I enjoyed examining the historic cattle ranch brands embedded in the tabletops. Reasonably priced, good portions. Have never regretted a meal here.

Nice locals place. Only made it for breakfast but was pleased with the quality, quantity of the food. Great quick service. Looked like a reasonable lunch and dinner menu. Not a chain cafe, just a hometown place to eat.

I had breakfast, my husband had a club sandwich, neither was remarkable. The booth was really uncomfortable. Would not return or recommend.

Nice place to go for breakfast. Good old fashioned diner style food. Refreshing in this day of chain restaurants. Clean and great service.

I love the old fashion feel to this place, the excellent service and really nice people. Food has always been perfect and they come around back to your table more than once to check on you for anything else. (Great manners....). The walls are painted with history of the area and that really fun also. It does close at 3pm... More
