“Good value food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Stopped here while driving into Payson. This is a typical little diner that serves good value American style food, burgers, chilli, salads etc plus all day breakfast.

Coffee was good and plentiful, chilli was tasty, service was cheerful and prompt and we thought reasonably priced.

As busy as this place gets, and it does get very busy, you are never made to fell rushed.
The food is pleantyful and good and the wait staff is homey and happy all the time.
It is always a pleasure to eat there.
Oh, and DO NOT LEAVE THERE WITHOUT having a piece of the Chocolate Cream Pie!!!!!

“Nice, average, but a couple issues”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

I liked the cafe for it's charm and basic menu. I liked the chicken salad on a half cantelope with great blueberry muffin and fruit. What I can't stand to see are flies inside. And it was too warm. Ceiling fans were on, but looks like they didn't want to foot for refrigration comfort. I would try again to see if bugs under control.

“If only there were a Knotty Pine everywhere we travel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

I posted the picture above as I've had it in my phone for a few years. If you travel between the Phoenix area and the White Mountains in AZ, you need to stop here for a meal. This is a good old fashioned cafe with great basic cafe food. Plus you'll get your food, hot and freshly made, quicker than the fast food places Just went there yesterday afternoon. They serve breakfast all day so 3 of us had it. The other 2 had patty melts. Yum! Hand formed burger cooked perfectly. This place has been around for years and years and the food never disappoints. I personally hate chain restaurants. Give me a good old mom and pop place like this any time!
