The food served is plentiful home-style cooking and the salads are delicious. We ate there on Friday afternoon and had a very good broccoli salad with a delicious turkey and dressing special. They served large portions and we really liked it very much so we returned Saturday evening. On Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons meals are served family style with unlimited sides. Friday and Saturday evenings from 6-9 they have entertainment. The atmosphere is casual with antique decor and it is a relaxing place to comfortably enjoy your meal. They offer a limited menu with a wide array of desserts that are mouthwatering and difficult to decide which to order.

The menu is rather limited with only a few dishes to choose from. We had the chicken which is served family style with choice of sides. The food was tasty and plentiful.
If you enjoy basic home-style cooking, you will enjoy eating here.
The decor of the place is fun with a garage/old car theme.

The desserts are homemade and incredible. Chocolate dream, pecan pie, banana pudding...just to name a few. Salad is served tableside and is delicious! On certain nights, (I think Friday and Saturday nights) meals are served family style with unlimited veggies such as mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, squash...whatever is in season. It changes.
Live music on certain nights, classic cars on other nights.
We love this place!!

The homemade desserts are the best anywhere in Waco!!!
The vegetables not not fresh, but mostly canned. The seasoning is very bland. The meals are served family style. The atmosphere is casual.

Great little place in downtown Waco! The atmosphere is so fun and the food is great! All desserts are homemade!
Service is a little slow, but the ambiance and food make up for it. Dinner is served family style.
