Yummy & big portions. We have eaten here at least 20 times and we have never been disappointed. We did carry out the last time and it only took ten minutes.

The food was very good order came out fast and the service was great. Locals only kind of place. I also loved they had gotten rid of all plastic straws which I find important

Amazing food. I had a oversized bowl of cabbage soup. It hit the spot on this cold winter night. The beef stroganoff was very tender and the apple pie completed the meal!!!

I eat here probably once a week. And then on St.Patricks Day as there Corned Beef is out of this world. Great food no matter what time of day. Owner & Staff are wonderful and always pleasant. Tammy McClain has become our favorite Waitress. She...always has a smile on her face. You can get anything from Breakfast to Waffle sandwiches to Steak dinner. We love SecretsMore

It was a little costly for what you get $10 for scalloped potatoes & very little ham. $10 for lasagna, not too great , no ricotta cheese, clean but very busy., tables too tight, the guy at the next table interrupted us by just talking...to his family, I kept turning to see if he was talking to me. Lol I would give it one more try because with the amount of ppl there, there must be something good..?More

The first time I ate there I had breakfast due to oversleeping at our hotel and missed breakfast. I was amazed at the choice of selections, the portion sizes and the taste of the meal. We subsequently went back two more times for supper and...they didn't disappoint either time, the waitstaff is second to none as they weathered the constant influx of customers without any hesitation or missteps. This place is truly a hidden gem in not only Taylor, but the whole of Downriver.More

Been here several times. Food is consistently good as is the service. Breakfast is excellent, best omelettes around and very sizable. They do not skimp on your toppings either. Top notch restaurant is always packed. Daily specials are delicious as are the soups.
