I only had a burger and a drink, but it was very good. Nothing fancy, a little greasy, and crisp edges. Enjoyed it very much. They also had many choices for lunch ... lasagna, bbq chicken, meatloaf and much more.

Stopped for lunch and had a two-piece fried chicken dinner with greens and mashed potatoes and gravy. All were very tasty and freshly prepared. You order from a counter (and can see the sides before you order) and your food is put on a tray....More
