This is a small family style restaurant with limited seating.

Tried for breakfast based on TA reviews. Breakfast food was poor; ordered eggs and sausage. Sausage too tough to cut. Ate quickly and left. Restaurant not very clean. Neighborhood not great.

Skooters is the place to go if you are ready for a serious home cooked style meal. I been going to Skooters since I worked at Snyder's John Deere in 1987. Go hungry!

This is a great little diner that is big on flavor! We love the breakfasts and chicken, along with the livers. The staff it's always friendly and the prices are always right!

Skooters is a little Mom and Pop style diner. Good Breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Priced right. Quite crowded at times. Lots of senior citizens for meals and deals. Great country fried fish. Country fried steak is good. Fries, cols slaw, pies, all made homestyle.
