Going to Dean's felt like going to a relative's house to eat. The restaurant was in a house with tables in the different rooms. The food was comfort food all the way. My kids loved their biscuits and bacon. I had simple eggs and sausage. This is so much better than going to a chain restaurant like Denny's and getting cheap, floppy bacon. Dean's ingredients were much fresher and portions were heartier. The servers were wonderful, honest, attentive, and happy. Three generations of my family were eating there together and we were all just cozy and happy eating their yummy food.

I have had chicken fried steak from Bakersfield to Little Rock. Sometimes the breading is great, but the gravy is lacking. Other times the steak is tender and flavorful, but the coating is lacking. It is hard to find chicken-fried perfection.

Until now. Not only is the chicken fried steak at Dean's absolutely perfect, but they serve you TWO steaks as a standard portion.

Is the rest of the food good? Yep -- but the chicken fried steak is the standout.

We had breakfast here, it was perfect! Located in a small cottage converted to a restaurant, obviously frequented by locals. Friendly, efficient service, tasty food, generous portions. Standard breakfast fare, good and very homey. Would return!

Great homemade cooking with all the flavor of a real home cooked meal. The beef tastes the way beef should. Great breakfasts, hamburgers, and tasty sandwiches.

Always friendly service here. The food reminds me of diner style food. Big portions and so good, you know it's probably not the healthiest meal you have eaten. Only reason I gave them four stars is because it's busy every time we go here. It is kind of a small place, so we usually have to wait a little bit to get a seat.
