This was different than last time, last time had great server, not so much this time. Breaded loin was ok, server not on point almost like she would rather be someplace else. No suggestive selling, really didn't know the menu, didn't even mention the buffet....More

There are a lot of menu choices, a lot of items to pick from. The prices are reasonable.Think the specialty is the breakfast buffet...it has tons of items. Good, basic food to fill you up.

We here at Vaughn's are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our tenderloins are hand breaded, that's what sets us apart a little I'd like to think. We hope to feed you again soon!
