I have eaten at this place since 1978, back in the days of the old truck stop. As usual the service was good the food however has changed, it now reminds of assembly line meals, always filling but lacking in real flavor, this wasn't always the case but things change don't they.

One of the best Chicken Fried Steak and eggs I've ever had. Choice of biscuits, toast or English muffin with hash browns and gravy. Service with a smile and my meal came out pretty quick being that they were really busy. Huge breakfast menu so I'm sure they'll have something for everyone.

This restaurant reminds me of a truckers restaurant. Experienced wait staff, friendly, fast service and portions that will last you for two meals. The breakfasts are huge and the prices are reasonable. Bring your appetite.

We had a group of 11 family members together after celebrating my mothers 100th birthday. We were seated as soon as they had a table ready, not very long of a wait, as we did not have a reservation. Service was great, waitress was very efficient and friendly.Our food was great also. Good place for Dinner and cocktails

Well we walked in and there was no one there to seat us. We waited for about 5 minute thinking the host would be right back...No luck. We finally had to go looking for someone to seat us. We sat down and waited and waited...finally about 15 minutes later the server came over took our orders. We waited again. We... More

My wife and I stopped in to the Hawks Prairie Restaurant for lunch yesterday. This meal was kind of off hour visit but the service was good and the meal was tasty.

My sister and I ate here for lunch and though it was busy, service was good. They had a 'Petite' chicken fried steak so I got that and my sister got a 'Petite' hot roast beef sandwich. Both came with mashed pots and gravy. Both were delicious! Many people ate breakfast and they are very good here! You can order... More

We enjoyed our waffle and eggs breakfast. We requested a dark waffle at it was served that way. We were not impressed with the deep fried potatoes. The decaf was goods. Service was good.

This place was really good. I got a Turkey meal with mashed potatoes and it was very yummy. The turkey was tasty, moist and the mashed potatoes were creamy, wonderfully flavored. Dan got the guacamole burger and said it was very good. The garlic fries he ordered were so delicious, I couldn’t stop eating them. It was very reasonably priced... More

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon with friends. We ordered salads (very fresh), homemade chili (marginal) and a wrap. We were seated very promptly and were served by a very friendly, Anthony. He had excellent suggestions and answered all of our questions. The restaurant and restrooms were clean and showed care. We will return.

Thank Barbara and Dav... D
