In trhe past have gone to Berky's for breakfast or lunch. I t had been several months, when we deciced at last moment on July 4 to go for beakfast and were pleasantly surprised. The dining area has been rearranged with 2 large buffet islands in the middle of the front dining area. I had the buffet and it was excellant - many more items than before an d very tasty.Hot food was hot & cold fruits were cold.
My wife had steak & eggs - her favorite- and she said the steak was better than we have at home.
The place is very clean & the wait-staff is pleasent, helpful & CHEERFUL.
We will go back often.

This place was on the travel channel for interesting truck stops. Cool collection of old metal toys and pedal cars. Neat atmosphere. Buffet looked good. I had the meatloaf dinner. Huge portions of meat and potatoes. Good comfort food,,,,Give it a try when on 81 in VA......

The front desk at our hotel recommended this place for dinner. Our first reaction was, "You are really sending us to a truck stop for dinner?" Get beyond the entrance and into the restaurant. They have a nightly buffet based on a theme. We got there on Italian night. For $9.99, we had all you can eat ham, fried chicken, meatballs, pasta, choice of meat or plain tomato sauce, beef stroganoff, mashed potatoes, gravy, etc. and that was just the main course section! There was soup, a salad bar with various salads and other items, as well as a cake table for dessert. We ate in the Pedal Car room, which has real antique pedal cars hanging from the ceiling. There is also a tin toy dining area and another dining area by the buffet stations with trains on the walls. It is about a half mile from I-81 with ample parking and friendly waitstaff. For a good meal and a unique experience, make a point of eating here.

After finding this was on The Travel Channel and voted 1 of the top 10 restaurants (according to desk clerk at the Howard Johnson motel) we had to try it. Surprised this was connected to a Travel America truck stop and more surprised at the decor of the regular dining room and the Tin Toy Cafe.

Buffet was excellent with a wide variety - at least for breakfast. Server was pleasant; however, I don't think she paid attention to "ready" orders in the kitchen as mine came out cooler than I would have expected. Not cold, just not as hot as it should have been in picked up when ready.

Would recommend. Prices just right.

Picked because of pictures . BAD reason, food wasn't worth the money and not good .
Corned beef was like shoe leather.
