You can't beat the breakfast. Getting into and out of the parking lot can be difficult, but worth the trouble.

I gave up eating chicken fried steak years ago because of the calories but Down Home makes it worth it. Best I’ve ever had. Nothing fancy here but very satisfying.

Stopped by for breakfast going to our camper. The food was so so. Nothing to set it apart. Not sure if I will come back or not. The service was top notch

Delicious home cooking and friendly service. Plate Specials rotate throughout the month. Homemade pie for dessert, too.

Hungry? Stop by this Almost Famous location for a great meal and you won't be disappointed. The portions are more than enough but it's the home made flavors that will bring you back. Very affordable and the staff is so friendly.
