came for lunch around 11am on Sunday and I think we must have hit their peak time. Place was packed. TO be honest, I was a little hesitant to eat here as the place doesn't do much to be inviting on the outside and we saw a lot of motorcycles in the lot. Had images of some seedy greasy café....

Probably the best chicken fried steak in Springfield! If you go away hungry, its your own fault. Fresh brewed coffee, great biscuits, and eggs were cooked perfect. Our waitress was fantastic! I rarely give a restaurant an "excellent" rating in all 3 selections, but this restaurant deserves it!

If you like home-style type meals, this is your place. They have great Chicken Fried Steak. I get it every time I go and love it. My husband really likes their breaded pork chops. They also have a decent breakfast. If you're looking for something with lower prices, big portions, and consistently good food, Cedars is your place. Like I... More

We were in Springfield area visiting relatives. My dad wanted a real good hot beef. After reviewing reviews here on Trip Advisor we decided to try Cedars. The food is everything the reviews say......tasty, good portions, and very decently priced. We decided on the chicken fried steak because it was the special that night for $6.99. None of us could...

This seems to be a popular spot for locals. It is a fairly large place, and decor is limited to what is hung on the walls. We had breakfast. Food was no better than barely acceptable, but portions are large and prices are very low (we believe that this is the main attraction). Eggs were prepared to order perfectly. We... More

The Cedars on South Campbell Ave is awesome. It is a local hometown diner that offers huge portions for very affordable prices. We frequent Cedars 1-3 times per week. The service is always top notch. The food is always hot and fresh. Try the chicken fried steak, it rocks. The biscuits and gravy are both home made.

Went for breakfast. Little slow getting waited on but waitress was extremely pleasant. Our order was out in a very timely manner and was exactly cooked as ordered. Checking out was slow but at that time they were really busy so no problem there. Between the three of us we had eggs, hash browns, biscuits & gravy, sausage patties, coffee... More

Good food, good specials, hard working crew. It's a favorite around town--most don't even need a menu.
