We are regulars at Duncan's because the food is great, home style cooking. The value for the price is fantastic. Though it sometimes takes a bit to get your food, it's well worth the wait.

Huge portions, quick in and out. This is a $3 cinnamon roll. Very friendly staff. Will become a regular place to stop when we are in town!

Walked in due to good reviews and was nearby. Definitely not disappointed. Had a childhood favorite of a hot beef sandwich covered in mashed potatoes and gravy. It was perfect!

This is one of my favorite go to lunch spots for my wife and I. You walk back in time with the atmosphere of a small town community for lunch. The staff is always friendly and the food is always great.

If you want a down home, family cafe with great comfort food at reasonable prices, go no further. Downtown but only a short detour from I-29. Soups are homemade and awesome. Daily specials. Great sandwiches. Closes at 2:00 PM.

This is a great local place to grab an excellent breakfast or lunch. We eat there regularly on the weekends and even get takeout. It is a small place, so if you plan to eat breakfast there, come early or be prepared to wait. There...More
