Wonderful place. Quick service. Great price. Thanks. Just what this traveler needed. Off of I40 or route 66. Plenty of room. Lots of families and smily faces. You'll be happy you stopped here. Love all the crosses especially during this season as we get ready to celebrate the birth of Christ, the savior of the world.

I didn't want to go far from my hotel, and this family-friendly place was just fine for the price. It was pretty quiet that night, but the waitress was very friendly and the food good enough for me!

We were worried based on some of the reviews we had read but dinner turned out ok. We were told to pick a table since the place was not crowded. The dinner specials were on the board as you came in but we ordered off the menu. The waitress was friendly and explained about portion sizes. The food was good,... More

It is basically the only game in town for breakfast. The server is fast and friendly. The food tastes better than average and the portion will fill you up. The price is also quite reasonable.

Nice staff. It was late and it was next to hotel. Salad bar was a a bit worn. If you are hungry enough and not too choosy, then eat here.

We chose to eat here rather than eat the motel breakfast so that we could get on the road early. I believe they open at 5:30 and the motel breakfast was served at 6:30. The service was fast. The food was good.

We were there for breakfast, and it was excellent. The food was wonderful. The server for our table was great -- we have so much respect for waitresses. This lady was one of those...efficient, personable, and pleasant.

Visited Saturday 10 /1/2016 at lunchtime. Busy but not packed, got seated quickly. Casual diner with booths and tables. Friendly service. You could tell there were a lot of local folks there, the waitresses knew most by name. They offer lots of choices (menu included breakfast, burgers, sandwiches, chicken, Mexican plates, a small but good buffet, etc.). We tried their... More
