Stopped for dinner, only one other couple there. Our dinners were typical of small town cafe, nothing spectacular. Restaurant seems to do a terrific business for breakfast and lunch.

Slim's is a typical small-town diner that seemed to have a loyal group of regular customers from the area. While initially it took a while... More

Stopped in looking for something to warm up the belly. We had the chili. Wow. That was some good chili. We wound up stopping the next day for some pie. No complaints about that either! I will return!
