“YUMMY breakfast - worth the wait”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

Yes, the full parking lot is a good indication that the food here is great. We travel a lot and often times look for a "Perkins - like" restaurant. This was GREAT! The food was delicious, the portions were generous and the service was fast and friendly.

We had to wait for 15 minutes or so to get seated but it was WELL WORTH the wait! I certainly will eat at the Village Inn next time we are visiting Johnston.

“Good Place to stop if you don't want Fast Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

We stop at this location often when traveling because you have easy access off I 35/80. Food is typical VI..nothing fancy but still good tasting. Breakfast and pie are your best bets but everything on the menu is good. This location hasn't been updated to the "new look" and is looking a little dated. Service was adequate and server was friendly and knowledgable. If you don't want fast food and you are traveling late as we usually do then this is a good option.

“Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Pretty average. Food is about the same as any village inn. It isn't the cleanest restaurant around. We usually just stop there because they have good pie.

“A Regular Stop -- Usually Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

I admit that this is a place I once called our "clubhouse" as we stopped here often when traveling to Des Moines. Most of the time, we had a great dining experience although once we had an inordinately long wait for our food. The "VIB" breakfast food options are worth a look. And of course, save room for a slice of pie, especially on Wednesdays when every diner gets a fee slice!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012 via mobile

This place is great for breakfast food good for everything else. The key lime pie is great but only around in June and July and it is often sold out.
