“Excellent food made fresh in-house!”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Awesome beer battered onion rings made daily by one of the staff. Delicious fresh made salad dressings. I had the citrus vinaigrette- very crisp and tasty. Great friendly service in a warm atmosphere punctuated by outbursts of people singing to the classic rock tunes playing in the restaurant. Busy, but quick service. French onion soup had no beef flavor, but more of an herbs and spices flavor- a little disappointing.

“Awesome gravy!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

My husband does Biscuits and gravy. He learned from his Appalachian aunts up above Blacksburg. He says this is the best gravy EVER aside from Aunt Bea. I had the green chili egg scramble that was ridiculously awesome.

“Great local spot for awesome breakfast! ”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

I love breakfast at this place. The country biscuit is absolutely amazing. I am a huge fan of gravy and this place seems to put it on a lot of selections. Always packed but worth the wait. A quick call ahead and you can get your food to go if you'd like. The atmosphere is one of a busy local diner. Staff is super friendly and fun to talk with.

“Great Service, Great Fresh Food”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

GREAT SERVICE!!! Despite being very busy, we were served very quickly by a wonderfully friendly staff -- and really delicious food. Clearly freshly cut potatoes in the Fries. Philly cheese steak was delicious with very lean meat and melted cheese. The onion rings were lovey with beer batter.

I could see deliciousness all around: Desserts were looking great. You can tell this is a favorite of many locals. We will come back again.
