Take out order

Staying at a local hotel got a take out order. Food was OK but they had no plastic utensils or any to go condiments. Asked for some and was told they didn't have any. Ended up stopping at dollar store to buy some. At least I will have some for next time.

Visited during a very busy time. Only had to wait a short while for both a table and our food. Server was really busy but still was pleasant and helpful. Food was very good. Enjoyed their current special of pumpkin pecan pancakes (delish). Would return.

I always get the build your own grand slam here. Very friendly staff. Relatively fast service, I like going here when I crave a good breakfast and it's not typical breakfast time.

Stopped in for a late supper around 8:30 PM. Took almost ten minutes to get seated. My wife took the kids to the restroom while I waited to order our drinks. Two young kids and my wife had time to use the facilities and walk back to the table and still no one had been over to our table. We... More

Outdated, smells like a nursing home fart and never ever on point with the orders.. portions are always different, its ridiculous! All employees are old or sub par performers here ....this tells me management is looped and complacent (probably preventing the next best thing to walk in and work there)..that's typical for this area.. I actually participate in this waste... More

I've been to this location hundreds of times over the yrs. Very comfortable atmosphere! Food quality is pretty good but the portion sizes are never consistent. I order the same thing every time I come here, Santa Fe Skillet, and the portions are never the same.

We were looking for a quick meal when all the mainstream places were closed. Ordered soup, and the cracker dish was filthy. Salt and pepper shakers were greasy, crusted with food residue. When I pointed it out to the waitress, she didn't seem surprised or bother to apologize. Place was just worn, torn, nasty dirty...
