Waitress greeted us immediately for drink orders. Food came just as we ordered and was prompt. Great variety of menu offerings. Don’t judge the restaurant from outside appearances. It’s a local favorite and it shows from the cars in the parking lot.

Our soldier said this was his favorite place to eat near base. We went the first morning of our visit for breakfast. It's just good old American diner food. Not the best I've ever had, but good, filling and the service was good as well....More

I rely on diner's for a good solid, filling breakfast when I'm on the road and Longway's did not disappoint. Eggs, sausage, bacon, fries. All good. But there is more than just the good food. This place operates like a Swiss Watch. Make sure you...More
