Great food and service. I love their fried chicken and coconut cream pie. Seasonally they have a Turkey dinner with a tasty sage dressing. I dine here about once every month or so .... most recently yesterday and before that in November 2013 and December 2013.
There are two sections ... the one on the left is for ordering from menu. This is the section we always choose. The other section has a salad/ food bar.

Reasonably priced .... popular with locals. Great place to stop when in road trip when not wanting fast-food.

Wide variety of menu items. Reasonably priced. Where locals go. Seeking soup on a cold December day and this recommended restaurant exceeded our hopes... We will stop again...

We stopped here for lunch while on a long road trip. We ate in the coffee shop section and found the food to be good, the portions large and the prices reasonable. The place was packed and it was obvious that there were a lot of regulars there, which is always a good sign. I think ours was the only car in the parking lot that had out of state tags. I had the special of the day - grilled pork tenderloin sandwich. It was pretty good (I'd never had one before) and the bonus was that it came with a sundae. My husband had a hamburger that was considerably bigger than the bun it came on. He enjoyed it very much. The service was quick and friendly. We'd stop here again if we had the chance.

We always dine here at least once when visiting family in the area. The menu is homestyle family fare as well as casual diner favorites. Their breakfast is superb as is the fried chicken. One of my favorites is their hamburger horseshoe (a chopped steak type burger on toast covered in French fries and smothered in cheese sauce). And their pies are beyond description. Especially the coconut cream with super thick, melt in your mouth meringue or extra rich peanut butter pie. If you are watching your weight or cholesterol, they also have an excellent soup and salad bar. But my advice is to wear your fat pants, indulge in the delicious, unhealthy menu options and make excuses to your doctor later. Just a note...if you are an out-of-towner, don't be surprised if you get a few stares while there. Although Effingham is the crossroads for two major interstates with travelers and truckers constantly passing through, at heart it is still a small Illinois town which means if you aren't from there, you are a stranger.
