We all had the specials. $8 that includes entrée, potato, and a vegetable. I had the meatloaf which the waitress said was homemade. They gave me two big slices and a scoop of mashed potatoes and topped it all with gravy. Pretty good meat loaf, I am usually disappointed in diner meatloaf. My daughter had the Country Fried steak which... More

The restaurant has great breakfasts and a large number of daily specials. They serve breakfast all day and the service is always good. The building itself used to be a Burger King that has been converted into a sit down restaurant so there is nothing fancy about it. Just good food and service at a very reasonable price.

Our family enjoyed breakfast for supper after working all day on our son's eagle project. Our service was top notch and the food was great. We were all very tired and starving for a big meal and we weren't disappointed, our omelets were ginormous! We will always go there for breakfast!!!!

My parents are regulars at this restaurant, and I ate there twice last week. The fare was reasonably good, but nothing special. On the first visit, my wife's order was wrong. They put American cheese in a mushroom (only) omelet. It's good for its small town atmosphere. It's build more like an old fashioned fast food/diner, not like a modern... More

Stopped in a half hour before closing which is risky sometimes. Five of us with some ordering dinner and some ordering breakfast. Everything came out hot and was very tasty. No complaints from even my pickiest of eaters. Under $32 for five meals was a good value.
