went twice in two weeks, got the same breakfast , each was less than $8.00. It takes awhile to get it when they're busy, but it's worth the wait. Love the biscuits and gravy,nice light color with pepper added, moist biscuits, and terrific homefries (get them with cheese and onions). Interesting atmosphere inside, kinda throwback to the old style restaurant.... More

This is a great place. lots of unique items on the walls to look at. Food is home cooked, we got the burgers, and they are not the "premade- frozen" kind either. Was so big, I... More

We were passing through and wanted a good local breakfast and we got it here! The bacon was crispy and the pancakes were awesome! We will be back!

The location is okay though the parking lot can... More

They close at 3 and the first time I went there I got there about 2:30 and they were closing down the buffet but allowed me to pick from what was left. It was delicious. Went... More

I had a bacon cheeseburger and fries. It was all good, filling and arrived at our table piping hot. Only complaint (for the meat & veggies) was the... More
