Everything is cooked fresh there i.e. Turkeys, hams, beef. Nothing microwaved precooked. Had prime rib Saturday night. Best flavor, cooked like we like, tender flavorful. Senior turkey dinner is fresh, moist and excellent flavor. I love the eggs Benedict. The hollandaise sauce is made fresh for each order and best ever. Old fashioned home cooked excellent meals. Great menu. Nothing... More

Had the patty melt and chili it was awesome. My waiter made great suggestions and the suggestion did not disappoint. Also a really nice touch having the old school ice cream bar near the register. Thank you

From the moment we were greeted by our waitress Jasmine we knew this had the potential for a great breakfast. Traditional eggs benadict and country huevos Rancheros hit the spot. Can't wait to come back for lunch and then maybe dinner. Definitely a top spot in Burlington

Stopped by for breakfast and was pleased to see this spot redone with comfortable booths that allow much more absorbtion of sound, more privacy and adds atmosphere. I normally come here more for the dependably good food and service alone; sure makes it easier to come more often. Try the steel cut oatmeal; they do it just right. The only... More

If you like chain restaurant food, try this place, you'll never eat chain restaurant food again! Everything from scratch. Roast beef, roast turkey, gravy....can't go wrong with breakfasts either

Menu has a little of everything. Mexican, Italian and American. Food is very good. Prices are excellent. Service is great. Family run. Home cooked meals. NOT fast food service. Good food takes time. Awesome clubhouse. Fantastic salads soups. Wonderful real turkey dinners. Go there. You won't be disappointed

This is one of our favorite places eat. Today we saw that the biscuits and gravy were homemade, as everything on the menu is. We do not eat this combo very often, maybe once in 5 years, normally they are not worth eating. These are different. The biscuits And sausage gravy are made right there. if you are a fan,... More

Today, after reading the good reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to stop for a late breakfast/early lunch. before going to see a movie. We had no idea that there was such a nice cafe in the Burlington Outlet Mall. The place is clean, the owners and wait staff are friendly, there are a lot of choices on the menu,... More

I always go to this restaurant when in the area. My favorite is breakfast which is a big serving and very economical. They have changed the restaurant this year and put in new tables and booths. It looks quite nice. I have also been here for lunch and the menu is good.
