Excellent Meat + 3 table service restaurant. The service was friendly and fast. We are always looking for a good place to eat lunch on a long road trip. We usually stop somewhere in this area, and Dale's did not disappoint. We will definitely stop here again.

Country food at its best! Perfect place for families or celebrations! Fried chicken is the best and all vegetables are wonderful.

Rolls were good but a bit buttery and soggy in the middle, but I had great service from Madeline. I got a 3 piece dark and the thighs are tiny but decent. Probably not going back, I wanted to see what the hype was. There wasn't a hype, sorry. 😔

This was a good family restaurant. We ordered the hamburger and chicken fried chicken, which we enjoyed. The dinner rolls were out of this world! The service was great and our waitress was kind and attentive. I would highly recommend.

This place has something for everyone from burgers to chicken and dressing. Different daily meats. They even have good steaks. Known for their homemade rolls. The best chocolate pie ever!

Read lots of great reviews but the reality was a let down. This is a very old place and the cleanliness was a little suspect. The bread was excellent but the fried chicken very greasy. I would not order chicken again. Service was good.

Great home style cooking and great wait staff. Food seems fresh and easy to get in and out of in the parking area. Building is a bit aged but clean. Highly recommended
