We frequent this restaurant quite often, it is a great valve for the money and the food is great. Service is good and friendly, food portions are ample actually bigger than most of the other restaurants serving breakfast. This spot is hard to beat. For value and price

If you are going to name your restaurant after a food item, you better be sure that the particular item is top notch. At this establishment, that is not the case. The flap jacks are doughy and very heavy. Furthermore, they are very dryand will soak up the syrup like a sponge. It fascinated me how the same set of... More

We were a party of 10. They did a great job at getting our table ready at a busy time. We had a variety of things ordered at our table. The chocolate chip pancakes looked great. I would not recommend this stop if yo are gluten free. The staff is great and the service as well.

Plan to wait if you don't go to early church - but for those of us heading to breakfast at 9:15 this works. The menu is huge and the options are numerous. I just wish that the specials were on a piece of paper versus a whiteboard because the list is really long and if you don't stand and wait... More

This is a "go to" place for brkfst or really anytime. Staff is friendly and food is always good! The prices are reasonable. Parking can get a little crowded because it is always busy especially for breakfast.

We've had breakfast here several times. Even when they are busy, we're always seated quickly and service is fast and friendly. The food had been consistently good and they are open to reasonable substitutions. On this visit, I asked to substitute grits for hash browns, not realizing the hash browns were served mixed in the eggs and meats. The waitress... More

Good sized portions of decent food. What else can you expect from a diner? Friendly service and fair prices, also. Gotta love it. Salads are very good and very large.

Men's prayer group meets here every week. Great food and service. It's a busy place with a diverse menu including breakfast (of course), salads and sandwiches. The pancakes are huge!

We had a great brunch there. Was a bit crowded, but still our wait was unexpectedly short. Parking is a bit of a challenge. Staff and food was superb.
