The people are friendly. The food is very good (especially the polancics Pork Tenderloin and the Hambuger steak with grilled onions).. The prices are easy on the pocket book. The HiWay Restaurant is a pleasant place to walk into.

We went to the Highway Restaurant on Memorial Day. The restaurant was very quiet with only a few full tables. The staff was friendly and the food came fast. It was very hot and tasted great.
