We wanted to have a local restaurant which has a limited menu but well worth it. The homemade pies were wonderful as well as the homemade hamburgers!

Easy on the budget. Great breakfasts all day and chicken strips yummy. Staff friendly. Mostly family owned. Lots of seating. Close to park, library, ice cream shop, railroad museum and squirrel cage jail.

My diet Pepsi tasted funny. I ordered the chicken fried steak with eggs and hash browns. The meat tasted like oregeno or rosemary. Gravy was sub standard. Will not go back.

Ok just so you know this place is hard to find, we just noticed it by accident and stopped in and wow. Friday specials are "whatever we feel like making" and this Friday was goulash. I'm not really sure what else was on the menu...More
