This was our first time here, and we will most likely return. The turkey sausage served with breakfast was very good. Service was fairly good, and our food order was accurate.

Stopped in for breakfast on our way to Memphis. Nice little restaurant. No frills just good food at a reasonable price. Service was good. Will stop again.

It needs a good cleaning even the coffee cup had stuff stuck in & on it. I would not ever go back there.

Got there just before the "after Church rush" and was able to be seated quickly. We had the fried Chicken special and the traditional Horseshoe with a twist—add ham—Two third pound beef patties served on two pieces of toast and smothered in in-house made cheese sauce, covered with French fries. What a treat!

We usually go here for breakfast. The selection is overly large but it is everything we like. The food is excellent. The ham and beans on Monday takes me back to my childhood. Nothing fancy just very good food. The waitresses make you feel at home.
