We had breakfast at Duncan's and the eggs and bacon were perfect. One pancake fed both four year olds at our table with some to spare.

Food and service were pretty good. Old hotel was neat too. Ordered the special, chicken fried steak. Daughter got the chicken strips which were surprising tasty.

Love Duncan's omelets and hash browns!!! Get a Denver omelet with at least a half order of hash browns plus toast--you'll be glad you did!

Mom and pop type of place with good simple food. Everyone is welcome and can get quite busy at lunch and on the weekends. It was nice to have a meal with no one glued to a screen or a phone or tablet.
