We went for breakfast about 9am on a Thursday morning, pulling up you are just not sure about the place but walking in it is sure a down home place. If you like homemade gravy... it wasn't to be found. However the omelet and home fries were great and my husband got a breakfast plate, no complaints from that either. Biscuits were frozen, as far as we could tell, the kind you get in a big pan, did not appear home made and the gravy if it was homemade wasn't what we get at home. However the waitress was friendly and kept checking on us and the food was really good. Price was excellent!

Great place for breakfast and lunch. If you go for breakfast, expect a longer wait than at lunch. Breakfast is very good and reasonably priced. Huge biscuits and delicious sausage gravy. Be sure to go on Friday for the Catfish which is hand breaded and deep fried. The Roast Beef is served daily and is an excellent choice. Fully loaded Chili Dogs are smothered in Chili, Cheese, Onions, Tomatoes, and Slaw. Burgers and Deserts are also great. Friendly atmosphere with a lot of regulars, including us.

Food was great, got the breakfast. I got the Rissas Special. Home fries were awsome. However waitress staff was awful. Never returned to table and ate entire meal with a empty glass.

Your not gonna get a feta and spinach or even a crabmeat omelet. but for the town they are the best. They are made more like crepe's than an omelet, however. Anywho they are good. Great service, very friendly staff. Small place but seems like their is 100 people eating breakfast at once. I highly recommend over the Ferells snappy service joint. Cleaner too.
