Friendly staff, great service. Serving sizes are big. The hand dip shakes are very good. Soups are made in house. Good kids menu.

My family stopped by for an early dinner and we're not disappointed. Service was great and food was good. Kids even got ice cream as a bonus. The burgers were fine, but the Grilled Veggie sandwich was not.

Killer chili, at a great price for the portion (HUGE). Incredibly tender steak, fresh vegetables and the service was attentive and pleasant. Don't let the "travel plaza" exterior fool you. It all tasted "Gramma-made."

Stopped in over the recent holiday weekend and the place was hoppin!! Our waitress was very cute, she gave us great service, and the food was far better than what I was expecting.
