We were waiting for the quilt museum to open and walking around and thank goodness we came upon this restaurant for breakfast. Our breakfast was delicious and hit the spot!

My husband is an expert on fries and he loved their fries. Happy to say we slid in before closing time. They are open from... More

Traveling through the Midwest we stumbled upon Ken's Gold Rush cafe. Ordered the BLFGT sandwich for under $6. The fried green tomatoes were perfectly cooked, the bacon thick and the coffee smooth and good. Nice down to earth folks who take pride in their work. Will return for sure.

My sister and I ate here after visiting the National Quilt Museum. We ate a hamburger for lunch which came with delicious fries. Service and atmosphere were great and so was our wait staff! Too bad I live 500 miles away!

I am so glad we stopped here for breakfast before we hit the road from the hotel. We had mac n cheese and some of the best we have ever had that was made from scratch. The omelettes were excellent. The home fries were great but too spicy for us personally. Now lets talk about the bread pudding waffles.. Oh... More

This local downtown restaurant is recommended by locals. We ordered receiving my home made meat loaf and my wife's macaroni and cheese, done southern style. The service was excellent, nothing fancy but good comfort food.

Passing through down on a family trip. Our boys saw this location as we were driving down the main drag and said they wanted to go. I had a build my own burger with Swiss cheese and grilled onions. The milkshakes looked incredible but did not order one due to the less than healthy eating I had been doing this... More
