Good food, reasonabley priced! Have to say that the place is basic food and well made. My Grilled cheese, ham and tomato sammy was really good! Service was fast and the place is very casual and old timey, with old stuff nailed on the walls...kind of like a Mom and Pop old fashioned diner...wouldn't hesitate to recommend! Closed on Tuesdays!!

We stopped here with some biker friends on Saturday, Sept. 17th and they were accommodating to our group. I suppose some might say the place oozes with small town charm but charm and torn up booth seats (all of them) shouldn't mean the same thing. I don't know, foam bubbling up out of the seats gives me a feeling of... More

I have eaten here twice (When Tellico Grains was closed ;) and enjoyed some cheap comfort food. I ordered the Reuben (both times) and it was very good.

They can't pass their health inspections. In TN, you can fail 3 out of 4 inspections and still serve food.

Little local diner that I didn't necessarily have high expectations for. Pleasantly surprised with a great omelette with great meats inside (great bacon) and very good hash browns though a bit on the oily side. Biscuit with gravy was pretty good as well though i expected more from the gravy. Owners were very nice as well. Service was pretty good... More

The food is minimally acceptable here. Frozen burgers are the best thing on the menu but there aren't alot of choices in the little town.

Group of 6 ate breakfast here and we all liked what we got from, eggs to pancakes, all cooked just right. Service was very good. This was also on a Sunday, which was one of the few places open. They also serve lunch and dinner, wish we had found this place sooner.

We stopped through on the way to Thanksgiving with family and decided to find a local place for lunch. Boy were we glad we did: * Blue plate special meatloaf was fantastic * Breakfast pancakes and eggs were hearty and tasty * Super club on wheat * Very fresh Philly with fries
