Stopped in based on TA reviews; we wanted something non-fast food, and close to the interstate. We had a burger, patty melt, egg rolls and dumplings--all were excellent. We all decided the egg rolls were the best we had ever had. Prices are pretty average.

Good food off the grill, hot, tasty, and served with a smile. No pretense of being something that they're not! It's a regular drop in place if it's between 10am and noon.
