Yummy breakfast their eggs, toast, and sausage is delicious. It is an old motel, but it has a good vibe.

Great staff on floor and in kitchen but new owners have cut back on the staff. They are overworked and service can be a little slow at busy times. Best to visit in morning when you can listen in on the conversation of the regulars....More

The food here is top notch. It is a small place not much to look at but serves great food at low prices. The wait staff are very attentive and friendly

The food is always pretty good, but the place is nothing fancy. We have eaten there several times. Will be going back.

Nothing to special here. A wide variety of good food in a typical friendly dinner setting. The staff is always friendly, happy, and ready to serve. We enjoy eating here any time we are in the area.

Friendly people with reasonably priced food. The biscuits and gravy are wonderful - you can actually find the sausage in the gravy!

My husband and I have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner at the 66. We've never had a bad meal. Friendly staff, fast service, good desserts including their milkshakes. Good home cooking at reasonable prices. Don't let the outward appearance scare you off!
