“Best open faced roast beef...EVER!!!”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

I visit the Lunch Box about once a month, and order the same thing every time. It's the open faced roast beef sandwich. 3 slices of white breat covered with a heapin' helping of roast beef , topped with a scoop of mashed potatoes, then covered in your choice of brown or white gravy. And it's all about $6.50!!! Make sure and taste it before you salt it. There are a wide variety of plates in this hidden gem. I have heard that the corned beef sandwich is very good. They also have a special every day. The efficiency of the staff is out of this world. Our waitresses have also been very attentive and friendly. The bad news...the lunch box will be closing its doors in March of 2012. You better visit it before it's gone forever!

“Great old gem that is losing luster”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

Old popular lunch line. Great corned beef everyday and bbq chicken on wednesday. The mac and cheese is very good. The vegetables always look good but they all taste like broccoli as they just keep a pan of hot water on stove and everything goes into it and is removed with a strainer. The pies,and wheat rolls are very good.

If Ed is on the line, it moves quick and service is good. If Ed is not on the line, then service is slow,spotty and portion sizes go down resulting in bad value. (grilled chicken salad with less than a half of chicken breast on it for 7 bucks).

“Excellent handmade menu items!”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

When you see the restaurant, keep in mind that the building was opened in 1946. After you get inside, relax, and order anything from hamburgers to meat loaf, catfish to pork chops, all of which have handmade breading and don't forget about the pies. Again, all made by hand and fresh that morning. Hungry for breakfast? Come on in for some of the finest homemade biscuits west of the Mississippi! In the mood for a quick burrito? Just tell them what you want in it, but be sure you are hungry! And the prices, don't worry about that. One of the most reasonably priced places I have been to anywhere around. And just like the food, you can't beat the hospitality that comes "No Charge"!
