“Unassuming but good home cooking”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

This restaurant in a former firehouse is unassuming in appearance, particularly from the outside where you have to search a bit for the door. They seem to specialize in breakfast anytime till they close at 2:30 p.m. but also feature daily specials, hot dogs, burgers, and country specials like chicken fried steak. My husband had the daily meatloaf special and he loved it; the meatloaf was quite tasty. A hot dog with chili and cheese came so loaded with chili that it was hard to find the dog. It was definitely and knife and fork special and one that was filling even without the bun. Fellow diners are extremely friendly. And how can you help but like a restaurant with a polished fire pole (today decorated with twining evergreen for Christmas) that disappears to the second level but which has a pair of descending fireman's boots visible?

“Great breakfast & lunch place”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Neat old fire station that has a great cozy atmosphere. Great breakfast items as well as firehouse chili and burgers/dogs. Now my #1 choice for lunch/breakast destination in Hutch.
