I went here for breakfast. The breakfast stuff is pretty standard - eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, etc. But to be honest, most people were eating fried chicken and waffles. Not my ideal breakfast meal, but a good meal nonetheless. Good service.

Rib eye is only 14.95 USD and much cheaper than in Hong Kong. The quality and taste worth far more. Will come here next time and next time. 牛排很棒!超级好吃!香港估计买卖三四百以上的牛排,这里才15美金。一定要来!多吃几顿!感觉一直吃也不厌。 其他食物,例如 country scramble 是有蔬菜的炒蛋,终于能吃点青菜。

First time here. Loved it! Wife had the original Chicken & Waffles and I had the Country Fried Steak. Both were great. Very generous portions. Very friendly staff. Our server was topnotch.

Just off Woodward is one of the best places for waffles and chicken. Quaint atmosphere, awesome food, great prices. Beware they take cash only. The process is a little awkward - you order at the cashier and then get seated (where service is a little on the slow side) - but the food is worth the wait.

From the moment we walked in to the time we walked out we were greeted so pleasantly!! The service was fast and the food was EXCELLENT!! The atmosphere was clean, chill, mellow, relaxing, with smooth jazz playing!! I recommend anyone to visit this place!! As far as budget the prices are in-between. The prices are reasonable.

My mouth was watering for the chicken and waffles but I am on a low carb diet. I was not disappointed with the blackened tilapia. My husband loved his ribeye steak and we both are still craving our side of collard greens. There is nothing fancy here - you order at the counter, pay with cash only, and the server... More

I love this little place. I eat here probably once a month. Of course, my favorite dish is the chicken and waffle. The chicken wings have a nice crisp batter, but they are generally very moist on the inside. The waffle is soft with just the right texture. There is parking next door. I would like to see the restaurant... More

Chicken and waffles were great but a little pricey for Detroit ($11 for 3 wings, 1 waffle, and 1 sliced up strawberry). Get there early as it gets very busy.

We were taking out of town guests to the Piquette Ford Plant tour and asked a friend for a breakfast place close that served chicken and waffles. So glad we tried this place. The waffles were light and not too sweet, the chicken was crisp but not overly battered or greasy! The staff were very friendly. Will definitely drive from... More
