Location is pretty average. Took a while for us to get our food but it was good. Prices are average.

We stopped here because of all the good reviews I read online. We stopped on a Sunday for lunch. They had homemade pies listed on the menu, but according to one of the servers they don't usually serve pies on Sunday. Who doesn't serve pies on Sunday? Needless to say we were very disappointed. Also, they still allow smoking in... More

Stopped here on way home and highly recommend. Service was great and food tasted great. It was obvious a lot of people are regulars here. Everything coming out of kitchen looked delish and huge portions! Only negative, in my mind, is this restaurant still allows smoking, but only one patron lit up while we were there.

The food is good, portions are large, but the place is very smokey and hard to breath in sometimes. I had the open face roast beef with mash potatoes, it was very good. My wife had BLT and she said it was good. Nice friendly family place, just wish the smoking was not allowed.

Family's serves up huge portions of belt bending goodness! Schedule a doctors appointment shortly thereafter, because diet food is not an option here! I had the Chopped Steak with mashed and gravy and it didn't disappoint. No room for desert!

If you like a huge cheeseburger, old fashioned pie with sky high meringue, and giant steak fries - and don't forget the sweet tea, then this is the place for you. It's down home, comfy, and everyone does know your name. It's great food and I get carry out quite often. If you don't like smoking- go for carry out.... More

This is a place that should be outstanding. It's an independent, local, restaurant offering home-cooked comfort food. The last two times that we've visited, however, we have been very disappointed. In our latest visit on 10/9, the service was very slow, with only one server attempting to serve the entire restaurant and (according to our one server) only one cook... More

It is a good experience. The family that owns it is very inviting. The food is also great. I recommend the Open faced roast beef. Thanks for the good times. They give generous portions of food.
