Every time I am in town I eat here and I'm never disappointed. The food is always amazing and the owner and the people who work there are always so pleasant and kind.

We stopped in one day for early lunch. We both had the hamburger and I had coleslaw. It was okay, nothing special. The waitress was very nice and attentive.

This is our go to place downtown when we want a burger and a piece of home made pie. Everyone that works there is simply awesome.
