I've been here numerous times in the past and have always had a good meal. They always cook me a special (healthy) breakfast. This morning Christina just did an awesome job and is the best waitress I've had in a long time😊

I got the fried chicken and it was a little bit on the greasy side. Could of taken another minute or two to drain the excess grease. The seasonal vegetables were bland. Don't know if I would come back.

I just pulled up their website and they show that they will be open on Thanksgiving Day from 6am to 10pm. However, it also says, "Times May Differ." All in all, they look to be open for Turkey Day.
