The previous owner provided interesting tasty meals. Now it's just like there are guys in the kitchen cooking. My chicken salad sandwich was shredded chicken with some Walnut pieces placed on top of it. I prefer dusters just down the road a block.

Had the Patty Melt and curly fries. Both were excellent and the service was good also. Will go back!

We were driving through and my husband wanted a breakfast meal for his evening meal. I had a Ruben. It was served quickly and hot. It wasn't the best we have had but we were in and out quickly. It was very quiet for 6PM,...More

Pie crust and flavor of pies have changed. I miss the fresh blueberries in the pancakes. Service is pretty good there.

Don't order fish here. This is Nebraska. Beef is best, sometimes. Not the best steak in town. Breakfast is their best meal. The biscuits and gravy is very good. The buffet will fill anyone. Their pies and muffins are also very good.

When you order coffee you can have the powder cream or milk for free but have to pay 10cents each for the little creamer. Never heard of such a thing!

We had breakfast. Pancakes okay, good bacon. Coffee was weak, and we were charged $.10 per artificial creamer. The restrooms were not clean. The server was friendly and attentive. We would not return
