Stan's has the best burgers on town, as well as a variety of other food. The prices are excellent, and the restraunt is very clean.

Service was fine but the food was just very very bland. I remember when it was a treat to go there and the food was great. Sadly it appears that is a thing of the past. For the price I paid I can promise I won't be back.

On road trips; usually try to find exit that covers all Bases, food , fuel and facilities. Great place for pit stop. Food is down home cooking n takes more time than fast drive thru types, but it is tasty and staff displays local southern hospitality. Can also pick up snacks if u prefer to get rolling again quickly.

Located across road from our hotel sick of fast food so we wanted a close sit down restaurant and there weren't many choices in the area. Hubby had pulled pork on corn bread and I had the pork tenderloin dinner. I didn't care for the mashed potatoes but pork was good and rolls the best! Prices were very reasonable.

Cool place to stop, however service is non-existent. We went in, put our names on the waiting list for a 20 minute wait. Got all 7 of us inside, then the manager said it would be 3-5 minutes. 30 minutes later after those who came in after us were already seated, they said it would be a "few more minutes".... More

good all round food reasonably priced- I couldn't finish my food as there was so much - lots of locals going home with some of theirs as it was too good to leave
