There were four of us who went to this restaurant and each of us enjoyed our meal! The waitress was great and she was very friendly. I had the blueberry pancakes and scrambled eggs. It was delicious! You never leave here hungry!

Except for breakfast, the rest of the food is gross. The kids Mac and cheese was the grossest thing I've ever been served at a Resturant -

Never really disappointed here, and the fresh new look actually makes the wait staff happier. Food was fresh, timely and just in time to allow us to escape the presidential debates!

Good service, always a fine place for breakfast. Chicken fried steak with gravy is my goto for breakfast. Food came out fairly quick.

We were travelling on I-80 and saw the billboards. We never have been disappointed at Perkins and stopped for breakfast. It met all our expectations.

Cheerful diner-style (may be a local chain?), with a huge menu and all meals available at all times. The grilled pork chops with mashed potato and green beans with bacon arrived piping hot, well-cooked and delicious. Within walking distance of several hotels. An excellent meal for the price.

Very convenient with good food. They have great breakfast and deserts. They are occasionally out of dinner items but have a good choice of alternatives.

They were lined up out the door at the Cracker Barrel so we gave Perkins a shot. We waited about 20 minutes but considering that it was father's day that wasn't too bad. Typical breakfast menu omelettes, bacon, biscuits, pancakes etc. They were very busy but the food arrived promptly and the coffee did not run out. No complaints.

Thank D J
