Quality of the food and service is always "Second to None"! Great local eatery and one you will be sure to enjoy.

“We will give it another shot”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

We drove 25 miles because we heard this place was good. We were the only ones in the place on Mothers day at 10 AM. We were told the busy time is 7-10 and after noon.
We ordered the eggs, potato pancakes and sausage patties. When the sausage patties arrived they looked like medium size hamburgers(obviously homemade). My husband loved them. I had the potato pancake not at all what I expected. Hash browns with onions fried. It as OK, they need more zip. They were cooking BBQ outside in the smoker as we arrived it smelled GREAT.

Over all, yes we would try it again. I agree with the other reviewer, it is not cool enough in this restaurant and they do have to watch their presentation. The PLACE MATS NEED TO BE BLEACHED or changed for a different type, waitress need to wash her apron,OLD caked on food all over it.

“Burgers are Great!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Stopped in for lunch, place was filling up fast with the lunch crowd. Wife and I enjoyed a nice lunch - the hamburgers are Great! Plenty of fries too. No room for dessert, but rumor has it they're good too. They have a new cook so we're looking for bigger and better things coming from the kitchen!

“Great Burgers”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Unprepossessing place by the side of the road with great ambiance and feel. Samantha is upbeat, happy, hard working and wants to please. Everything we have eaten there has been outstanding -- hamburgers, sandwiches, chicken fried steak. Obvious that most of the customers are frequent returns and we will be too.
