Pretty average greasy diner food, they do make a lot of it in house though. If you are looking for American cuisine that is affordable, this is your place! It is pretty average, but the portions are large and will fill you up.

We stopped by here when in Dillsboro for hiking and visiting Asheville Permanent Makeup. Had a great breakfast, very local place and full of history. Read the back of the menu, it tells the story.
