This is the picture of local eating. It's a no frills cafe that makes "home cooked" meals in a restaurant setting. The service was good the food was good. It wasn't the best meal I've ever had but it wasn't "fancy" breakfast either. Excellent start to the day.

A little hole in the wall in a strip mall. This place is a bit run down. It is time for a little sprucing up I would think. The decor is a mish mash of antique and garage sale items strewn about in a no order fashion. However, the food is fairly low priced and pretty good. Stop in for... More

Been awhile since I've been back. Used to go here many years ago, many, like 45 years, still here and for good reason, it's good solid home made cooking. Had a hot roast beef sandwich and it's as good as I remembered. Comfort food. Good portion sizes, reasonable prices, home made food.

Grandma's Kitchen has always been a family favorite for breakfast. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the restaurant is filled with quaint antiques. If you are looking for a laid-back restaurant to have a filling breakfast with the usual good eats, that won't break the bank, come to Grandma's Kitchen.

This unassuming breakfast/lunch joint is tucked away in a small strip mall, next to a hardware store, at 14th Street and Broadway, just behind a smoke-spewing fast food hamburger franchise. The food is basic and tasty, fairly priced and the food is quite respectable. Better yet, the service is friendly and attentive. Grandma's is a very popular family destination and... More

Fabulous food and service. Lots of locals joking with the regulars and staff. Happy and relaxed atmosphere that is a diner at its very very best. Did chicken fried steak, eggs ,hashbrowns and toast. Everything was seasoned perfectly. Hashbrowns were buttery and crisp. Nice real meaty sausage gravy. Waitress never let my coffee or ice water go empty. Fast service... More

Grandma's kitchen is a cute little diner that seems to attract mostly older folks. The pepper jack chicken wrap I had and the ham and bean soup my grandma had was pretty good. The server was friendly and prompt. The only thing that bothered me was the amount of trash and filth that seemed to litter the floors and underneath... More

A nostalgic restaurant in a strip mall that pays tribute to military veterans. They have a kids' menu and the adult menu was very good and the prices were very reasonable. The service was great and quick. They have antiques including a wood burning cooking stove (not used). The restaurant is popular with the locals.

Thank John L
