We decided on a whim to drive into Magnolia to try this place for breakfast. We were so happy that we did. The food was delicious, hot and cooked perfectly. I had the chicken fried steak and eggs, my husband had the breakfast tacos and our son had the chocolate chip waffle with strawberries and whipped cream. Everything was outstanding!... More

Went for a late evening dinner. Family members had a meal, I had a milk shake. They use Blue Bell ice cream. Probably the best you can buy. The milk shake was thick, smooth and delicious. Other members had patty melt sandwiches and were satisfied with their choice.

Food is decent. They have a lot of booths and that is a big plus for us. There is a fair variety on the menu too.

Being located in a strip center should NOT deter you from stopping at here. It's a LOT bigger than it looks from the outside. Parking can be an issue though if you stop during peak hours. I had the Reuben and fries with queso. Reuben was OK (meat a bit too well done) but the sauerkraut was superb. Fries were... More

Went for brunch. The pancakes were good (not great), but the bacon and sausage make up for anything. So. Good. Eggs were great, the bacon was sublime, the sausage was wonderful, the coffee good. The service was spot on and friendly. If you don't want to experience the smoke of other diners, sit at the very front of the restaurant.

Stopped in for a bite to eat and loved the food-the chicken fried steak was AMAZING (the gravy was just ok) but everything else was great. We had burgers, chicken fingers, homemade onion rings fried okra, mashed potatoes-the potatoes were also just ok-it will be the chicken fried steak I go back for-wish they would improve the potatoes and the...
