“Not so rocking”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Good food, many choices, good prices, average service, clean table tops, Good food, many choices, high prices, good service, dirty table tops, seems like not cleaning tables has become the standard at most restaurants.

“Diner food”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

It is great for breakfast, but it is diner food. I prefer a little fresher and healthier options, but if I am in the mood for meatloaf, this is the place to go.

“Try it for something different”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Old time dinner with decent food. If you are looking for different dining experience, give it a try. Meatloaf is very good.

“Country cooking at its best.”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Try anything on the menu. You will not be disappointed. Corn casserole, pork chops, sweet potato casserole, collards - just to name a few. Aslo, try the quesadilla...unbelievable!

“Greasy spoon - for when you want a diner - this is the closest thing around!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

The good: breakfast - French toast and hash browns. Good service: the waitresses remember you and are hard workers for what I imagine very small tips. I always over-tip here.
The bad: no real cream for coffee. Non-dairy liquid 'coffee-mate'.
The ugly: don't sit near the bathrooms. You'll smell the cleaning chemicals.
