“Small, but service worth it!!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

My wife had a lunch item, and I had a BLT, (for me, could've used more B), but it was about normal, and really GOOD !!!! Little crowded, but that would have been okay except a large family, from toddler to seniors, were at 3 tables next to us. The young adult male with toddler, could not be pleased as hard as our waitress tried. Toddler was screaming, and they left without leaving a tip. (Trust me she earned a big tip) During all this, she also served us quickly and with a smile. We will return, most likely for breakfast next trip!!

This place may be okay for breakfast but i would never eat lunch here. This is what my dad always called a "Greasy Spoon"

“best breakfast in years”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

This is a small place, but the service was excellent and the food delicious. It's in the Best Western Motel parking lot, but most of the customers looked to be locals.

“Weekend trip”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Very much a small town cafe feel. Small place but very friendly. We were in a bit if a hurry and the waitress, although very busy, attended to out order right away. We were having late Sunday breakfast and the food arrived quickly. It was a great breakfast. Reasonably priced, good food great service. It doesn't look like much from the outside but if you want breakfast in Mcalester, this is the place to go.

“Good breakfasts. Truck parking available.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Nothing fancy. Standard diner fare. Rather small. Tables handle parties of four. If you have more than four in your party, go elsewhere.
