Great breakfast with reasonable prices. Only thing I didn't care for at lunch time were their french fries. They tasted like they were burnt even though they were a bit soggy.

Great food and service. The menu has something for everyone. The fact Texas Chainsaw Massacre was filmed in the home is interesting. Friendly staff.
