Good old standby for comfort food. Yummy, fresh, and the service is good. You know any place frequented by the locals has got to be good, and this place is full of them. Breakfast, lunch, dinner-all good!

Very friendly staff. Delicious breakfast. Jan was there and talked to everyone at their tables. I asked about the pancakes. She brought my husband and I each a pancake to try. They were the best! If in Buena Vista, this is the place to try!

I've now been here 3x and love it. My problem is that I keep ordering chicken-fried steak w/ gravy, eggs, and hash browns. Jan's is classic diner; the locals place. Staff are very efficient and friendly.

Not sure if it is hand breaded but it sure is good. I am willing to think so because most of their food is home made.
