Love, Love, Love the Chicken tenders. All meals are very good and reasonable. No ambience, but real friendly people and good service. Simple food, but very good. and the prices are very reasonable.

Thanks. Tripadvisor for helping us find this place. It was good hot, old fashioned food & a fun place to eat. Off the beaten path & a general store next door.

Food was good. Service was too. If you are looking for good food with no frills, try the Gilkey Service Center. You can get food, gas, and groceries all at one place.
