If you like Waffle House you will LOVE Waffle King! This place has a great breakfast! Eggs are great! Country ham is great! The hashbrowns are perfect! And, of course, the waffles are as good as they get! Expect to pay about $10 per person including tax and tip. Breakfast menu available all day! I have been told by my... More

Food is just eatable but is not handicap friendly in its seating and very uncomfortable seating. Waffle house is a better bet and fast on service. Pleasant staff but can be very cold at times because the behind the counter personal get very warm running around so fast. Bring a sweater or light jacket.

This is a great place for breakfast. The servers are so friendly and helpful. The bacon was crisp, the eggs were cooked perfectly and the hash-browns were yummy. The biscuits are good but the gravy is okay. I've had better gravy. It is a busy place so be prepared to wait for a table. However, the table "turn over" quick.... More

I visited here on a recent trip to Harrah's Valley River Casino. The breakfast was so good the first day we went back again the next day. The service was very friendly and fast. This is a relatively small diner but we had no trouble getting a table even though it was busy. There were four of us in our... More

We went here once for breakfast. It was a perfectly fine breakfast. I'd give this place a higher star rating but find it hard to get excited about breakfast. Good food and fast service.

This is the best place in MURPHY for breakfest and lunch. Rick and his great staff are always happy and friendly. They provide excellent service and great meals. My favorite is the number 1 with biscuits, eggs, bacon, sausage and has browns. Great people and food.
