“Good food at a good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Hometown food and home town people. Good simple food for reaonable price. Make sure you tip your waitress they work hard for a pittance.

“Familyspot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Good family place to eat. The 50's decor is fun. Owner makes you feel like part of the family.
Food is good and portions are plentiful. Plenty of adult choices and kid friendly food. I have been enjoying the Pokey Burger for about 15 years.

“Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Very good service and a enjoyable breakfast. Frequent coffee refills were a nice addition. Many local people gather daily to give a down home atmosphere.

“Great 50's flair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

and great home cooking! This was a jewel that we ran across while sightseeing in the area. The extensive menu carried traditional staples as well as daily specials. This particular Sunday the special was roast turkey and dressing with whipped potatoes, fried okra and fried squash. My husband said the squash was the best he'd ever had...thinly sliced, coated in a cornmeal dusting, and fried to a crisp! We will be sure to return!
