Stayed at the hotel and ate here twice. Had their sliders, which you can sample 3 of their burgers in mini form. And they were great! Breakfast the next morning was just as good. Biscuits & gravy excellent also.

Good food!
We stayed at the hotel connected to the diner, so we were frequent fliers to them for a few days. The breakfast pancakes were outstanding, some of the best you'll ever eat away from home. The syrup was tasty too! As for dinners, they have some oh-so-tasty burgers. Anything with bacon on it will taste amazing, but they made the rest of it taste incredible too!
Wait-staff was very pleasant and friendly as well. Service was a tad slow, typically, but the food was worth it. Fairly easy on the wallet too.

Had the Sunday breakfast/brunch with family members. Good food and a very pleasant atmosphere. Niece's significant other said they have the best burger in town. Line began to form after we were seated but seemed to move quickly. I consider my biscuits and gravy to be the best, but I went back for seconds here.

We went for lunch with the family. We had heard a lot about the burgers, so had to indulge. We timed it right too, as it was buy one get one day! What a deal! These burgers are the best, a unanimous decision by my burger lovers. Fun place, great food, skip the typical burger joints and go have a Hawkeye burger loaded with grilled onions, mushrooms and cheddar cheese!

We arrived a bit later in the evening and were very hungry. We started out with hot wings, a pound of them were delivered to us before the meal. I ordered the french dip sandwich and couldn't have been pleased more. The french fries were out of this world. My lady had a chicken sandwich and onion rings. The home made thin onion ring. She had nothing to say about her meal either. Our server was super in meeting our needs and having a great attitude too. Excellent food and service...
