Ordered the club sandwich and it was THE best I have ever eaten. They smoke (no pun intended) their own meat and the ham was 1/4 inch thick while the turkey was shredded. Not your typical deli style meat. Bring your appetite for this one!! It was huge and the (fresh) side potato salad and crispy (frozen) onion rings were... More

We took a chance and decided to try something different. We questioned a restaurant connected to a convenience store, but were pleased with a great atmosphere, good food, great service at a good price. Would go there again!

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.

decent spot to go have your breakfast in the mornings. We enjoyed seeing all the antique cars that have passed by the dinner throughout the years.

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."

My friend and I stopped by for a light meal and a milkshake. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the servers. We liked it so much we went back for breakfast the next morning. Good food!
