Not impressed by the food, but did have good service. This place seems to have went downhill from our last visit. Don't think we will go back again.

We had breakfast here three times in two years of traveling. Also had breakfast at the other well known breakfast establishment, along the same road ,10 min. down the street. We prefer Lil' Sambo's for the taste of the food served. Service can be slower...More
