I usually meet friends here for breakfast. It usually has a line especially on weekends because the food is excellant. Well worth the wait.

My fellow classmates and I were staying in Xenia, Ohio for our graduation from seminary. We decided to venture out of the city of Xenia for a different breakfast experience. The hotel only had continental breakfast. One of our group did a google search and found the Golden Nugget. Wow! This was a fantastic choice! The food was absolutely delicious.... More

One of my favorite brunch restaurants in college. The pancakes are so good, as is everything on the menu. Also, you stand in line to be seated which is because you always know how much longer it will be.

I visited on Friday the 13th of May at around 9am. This was my first time visiting based on other reviews and recommendations from other TripAdvisor members. The parking is plenty.

Stop in for a quick breakfast before leaving the area. It was delicious, our server was friendly, and the food came out quickly. Will definitely visit again.

This has always been a favorite spot. Since going gluten-free, I had not been there. BUT, they NOW offer gluten-free pancakes, IF YOU ASK, as they are NOT listed on menu.. I had a full stack of the gluten-free pancakes and they were great!! I also had their bacon, which is a generous serving. Finally, there coffee was good.(If you... More

I've gone a few times, hoping to like this place, because it's so popular. I've given up. The pancakes are just thick without flavor. You have to add lots of low quality syrup to add any flavor.
