You could drive right by this restaurant without ever noticing it, but that would be a HUGE mistake! Find it and go! Why? Because you will find the NICEST staff you have ever met - from the minute you walk in the door to the time you leave, they help, they serve, they smile. You will also smile when you sample the food -- large portions, tasty comfort food, and you can have breakfast, lunch, or dinner all day. I had breakfast - bacon and swiss omelette, Americian fried potatoes, Texas toast, coffee. There was TON of bacon in the omelette, potatoes nice and crispy without being over cooked. And, the BEST coffee I've had in a l-o-n-g time! It's not fancy, but it is GREAT!

Small portions, service was neither friendly or rude, clean rest room, lots of locals but the food was average. Little one had a kids meatless spaghetti the sauce was from a jar. Chicken parm was ok, hot turkey was terrible not actual turkey sliced but deli meat turkey, with gravy that ruined the meal. Husband had chicken breast which was very good cooked perfectly mash potatoes were pretty good and its hard to mess up canned peas so... will not be back based on food quality but it was better than fast food...

We were staying at a nearby hotel that offered free breakfast but elected to come here most mornings and pay instead. Loved the biscuits and gravy - and REALLY loved that they offered full, 1/2, and 1/4 sized orders of them! Friendly, prompt, attentive service from everyone. Coffee always coming by so never had a cold or empty cup. They know how to cook eggs here, too - over medium was truly medium and over hard was hard...not everyone can get that right. Will definitely come here again the next time we're in town.

Today was our first visit and WoW! They do a brisk business, with good product, fast service, reasonable prices, and friendly service. It's definitely middle americana when it comes to menu options but I find it hard to believe that anyone would walk away unhappy or hungry.

If we were locals I'm sure this would be a regular stop. Food arrived quickly, and hot. I can't comment much on seasoning -- our breakfast items didn't require much more than kitchen salt and pepper. But all the smiles on all the happy customers made up for any shortage of salt!!!!!

I'll be back next time in town.
