The grilled breakfast burrito is awesome! As well as the Cajun turkey wrap. But you can't go wrong with any item. Great place, prices, and service!

Excellent Food, quaint atmosphere and quick service! Lots of choices on the menu. Closes at 2pm is the only downside. Great stop off the interstate - located downtown. Easy to get to.

I use them for catering breakfast and lunch for our staff meeting. The food is wonderful, always fresh. I have spoke to the owner on several occasions and he is always willing to accommodate my requests. I would give them an A+ rating.

The food is designed to go but there is a small (very clean) eating area. The breakfast food is truly delicious...the fried potatoes are not from a bag and are excellent. The hot dogs are good and the wraps offer something for everyone. I wish...More
