I stopped here with my daughter for breakfast and it was wonderful. I had a western omelette full of fresh ingredients with a side order of homemade sausage. She had the children's menu pancakes with sausage and we both loved our meal. That was fresh baked goods for sale to take with you and they looked scrumptious also. I would... More

Rolled in for breakfast and ordered the sausage and cheese omelette. The menu did not describe it as an over-stuffed omelette but it was oozing sausage. This may be the best omelette I've ever had (seriously) and I would stop again. The decor is country, the booths are dated, the service was adequate but the omelette was amazing. I'll never... More

I love to hit this place for breakfast when I am in the area. Good food and friendly staff. I have only had their breakfast here, so I cannot comment on the rest of the menu, but I keep coming back when I am in the area.

My family found this restaurant by chance, and I am glad we did. We ordered chicken & waffles (the kind they eat in Pennsylvania) with a side of mashed potatoes and homemade baked corn. It was so good! We will definitely be coming back.

This place is terrible...I have always said when in doubt get a burger. NOT!!! This was really bad (frozen) with no taste and my wife got the open faced turkey. (2) dry pieces of bread stacked on top of each other with hunks or lack of turkey with white gravy. Thank god for the applesauce as that was the best... More

This place is great. Cozy environment. I love "diner food" and this place has Everything! I had old fashioned creamed chicken over bisquits, some home made soup, and pie. It was all oustanding! Soooo much better to stop at a place like this than fast food. The service was very prompt as well!!

While driving through the area, we stopped here for dinner and it was acceptable. The service was very good, and the food was reasonable diner food. The ambiance is fine, with some cute signage. It's not fancy-but is fast and great location next to I-80.

Food was good and prices were reasonable. Atmosphere is average at best but service is good. If wanting an easy bite to eat with comfort food, then this is a good stop.

For the price, the food was good and plentiful. Service was excellent. Unfortunately, the restaurant is in need of some major repairs, inside and out. The booth cushions are all worn, cracked and torn. The walls, floors, tables and entire interior is outdated, worn, and has the appearance of being unclean. Worst of all were the bathrooms. Both were very... More
