This place is always busy but can be a hit or a miss! The day we went, my husband enjoyed his pot roast lunch. I ordered the 3 veg plate with cornbread cake! I think the cornbread is what made the wait so long. Greens were awesome but pinto beans reeked of salt because of ham...should have asked! Their broccoli... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor while looking for things to see on campus. Even though it was near closing time the staff was remarkable! The food was amazing, and yes a sandwich can surprise you. The chicken salad is fantastic! This was homemade food, no boxed food in sight. I will add this to my places to stop even if... More

Whenever I visit Bowling Green, I make every effort to go here for lunch. Nice atmosphere. Employees are friendly and helpful. Fast service. Large variety of food items on menu with specials every day. Reasonable prices. Easy to find in town and plenty of parking available. Food and desserts are delicious!

When I can't fix a home cooked meal for my family, this is the next best thing! Daily specials and plenty of veggies to choose from. My favs include the hot chicken salad, salmon patty with jalapeño cheese sauce and white bean chowder! Can't go wrong with a slice of cheesecake for dessert.

I frequent this place for lunch and the food is always good. Whether it be a sandwich, soup, or lunch special nothing is ever bad! 1/2 sandwich with soup is good if you are on the run. The pimento cheese is great, deviled egg with bacon is also tasty. If you have a wedding or large party to cater, the... More

Best white bean soup I've ever tasted. It can get crowded during lunchtime, so be prepared to wait. You order at the counter and they call your name when your food is ready. Sandwiches and daily specials-- lots to choose from.
