Always like coming here to have lunch. Better than the fast food chains. The service is quick and friendly. The food is always plenty and wholesome. No complaints here. A favorite of ours!

Went to the one in Plano a couple of days ago and really enjoyed the breakfast, that we came back to a different location.

Amazing find. Arrived at 10:40am and barely found a parking spot. The customers were of all ages and cut across many socio-economic levels, always a secure nod to the quality of food. Great service and food was lighting fast.

So much food for such a small price. They are gracious and courteous and do not skimp on portions. Chicken fried chicken was awesome! Use the groupon.

The Chicken Fried Steak is delicious. The mashed potatoes are real, the cabbage was great. Real home cooking. The peach cobbler was so good. Will definitely go there again when I am in Irving.
