The best chicken strips I have had in a long time! Four nice size strips, fried to perfection! Tender and tasty! Mashed potatoes were hot and gravy was really good! We will be happy to stop here again!

Located right off I35 is this great cafe. Our hotel recommended it and we weren’t disappointed! Food was hot and tasted great. Our waiter was professional and knowledgeable about the menu. A must for all who are hungry!
