“Go here for breakfast - well worth a drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2010

Had a big weekend breakfast there - ginormous omelettes and lots of home fries covered my plate. Biscuits were so big that they were not fully baked - the only downer. Lots of good coffee kept coming from very friendly servers. They even had chipped beef on toast - I actually love that stuff. The sausage gravy was to die for yummy with a hint of nutmeg(?). It's a family owned business with a positive attitude and good hands in the kitchen. Great way to start a day (with some to take home too - cinnammon rolls the size of hub caps!). Lots of CHP eating there. Didn't see one plate go back or hear one person gripe about anything. Definitely worth a weekend morning trip to try it.
