We’ve been visiting this little diner for decades. We stopped by today (1/5/19) for breakfast and they were closed up. “Closed. Thanks for the support” was painted on the front windows. Really enjoyed breakfast at the Crossroads.

Stopped into Crossroads about a month ago, while under new management. Although my deep fried cod dinner was good, they've cut back on the number of sides. Previously, the meal consisted of salad, potato AND vegetable -- now, it includes only two of the three....More

Although the Crossroads is somewhat cleaner under the latest management, their food is awful. It's pretty hard to put out a poor breakfast, but they do. Our breakfast steaks were half gristle, hash browns and eggs cold, and the biscuit and gravy awful. The wait...More

We enjoyed the homemade gravy(I can tell canned gravy right away), the delicious ham steak, and oh, the potato casserole! Service was very attentive. We will definitely be back to try the dinner menu. So glad we went.

I was excited to try this place, a popular restaurant right off of I-55. My wife and I dined here. It is a relatively small diner, with a 1950's feel to it. The menu is what you would expect it to be- burgers, lots of...More

First time visit, had the special of the day which was BBQ pulled chicken with Cole slaw and potato salad. It was very good and good amount of food. Breakfast served all day. Won't be my last visit.

We stopped in here for breakfast based upon a recommendation from someone in our group. This is a local restaurant right off I-55 towards Mt. Olive. It is nothing fancy on the outside, and nothing fancy on the inside. I ordered the Bulldog from the...More

We've stopped here twice for breakfast while traveling. The food is excellent, the prices excellent, and the staff friendly. A great place to meet local people.

The chicken fried steak for breakfast was awesome! The side of potatoes were cooked just right and were equally delicious - Yum! Our waitress was attentive and friendly. The diner looks like it's been there for three or four decades and has not been remolded...More
