we ordered take out. They gave us a large container for the salad and the food arrived quickly. Convenient to the Best Western.

Stopped in here for a quick bite on our road trip and wish I would have kept driving. The place wasn't very clean, the salad bar was a joke. And the prices were way too much I don't mind paying $50 for a meal if its good. My advice is keep driving!!!!

The Best Western front desk clerk directed us here, stating that 'There isn't anyplace else.' (This turned out to be untrue.) The restaurant was shabby, the waitress was sloppy and wearing stained clothing, and the food was your basic fried, greasy-spoon fare. On top of that, it was expensive. As my husband noted, "This place gives greasy-spoons a bad name."

Take the time to drive into Shamrock and find the steak house--or just eat fast food. It will be a big improvement.

We were on a trip and looking for a breakfast buffet. No luck with that. ....we just couldn't find one on the road so we decided to try Mitchell's. It's the kind of small town hometown family restaurant I grew up with. The omelets were better than most, hashbrowns were crispy and better than anything we would have had on a buffet and the biscuits and gravy were fine. The staff was friendly and waited on us promptly. Absolutely nothing to complain about and we will go there again on another trip. I can't imagine that anyone would go there for an upscale dining experience but if you want a comfort food experience then you will not be disappointed.

Overall the food was good,restaurant and bathrooms were clean. Service was good. Had an old time diner feel. A little over priced but the food tasted very good.
