On way back to Florida from Indiana we decided to try a local establishment. Stan’s came w/a 3.7/5 rating and was located at a gas station (2 for 1 sort of stop). The restrooms were very clean, updated and well thought out. The decor in...More

This was a stop about halfway to our destination. Moderately busy. Food was priced good. I had grilled chicken breast and chicken noodle soup. Breast great, soup was average. Good sweet tea! Several different dishes ordered by our party and no one had any negatives...More

First of all, their website is pretty outdated for prices, specials, etc. I had open faced hot beef. Was just so, so. Would not get again. Mashed potatoes were good. Hubby had fried chicken special and he liked it. We had a real ditzy waitress....More

Based on all the billboards touting "Stan's Restaurant since 1947", I was expecting a quaint old-fashioned diner. Instead, it's a Cracker Barrel wannabe at a gas station. We arrived for breakfast about 8 am & the place was empty. In any event, the waitress was...More

We began stopping here on our way to southern Alabama beginning when it was the old restaurant. The service has always been personal and prompt. The food is excellent beginning from breakfast to evening meals. Priced reasonably and the quality is well worth the time...More

The meal was a bit pricey for what you got. I ordered the pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, and baked apples. The tenderloin was okay...I received two pieces... one was good but the other was mostly fat. The mashed potatoes were not good... I’m not sure...More

Whenever traveling to the South we hope we planned the time well for breakfast at Stan's. It is definitely Southern cooking and there's plenty on your plate!

We stopped at the motel across the street and Stan’s looked like a nice place for dinner but what a mistake. The pork was soggy and the cornbread was like paper with no taste. The onion rings were generic. The only thing that was edible...More

After a very long day of driving, a good meal and rest was on our minds. We stopped at Stan's for gas and decided to eat there. Glad we did...the burgers and homemade fries were delish.
