We are thrilled you enjoyed the omelet! They are one of our customer favorites and definitely huge and filling!! I love mine with the biscuits and gravy not to mention the hash browns (even add a little gravy on those as well... yummy!!!)!

THANK YOU for your review and support!!!

My son and I stopped in to Phil's for breakfast, but found that they only serve it till 11:30. So, for lunch I had the daily special which was meatloaf, potatoes and green beans. (They have other sides, this is just what I chose). It was very good and plenty of food for just $5.99! My son had the club sandwich that also was yummy and large enough to take a bit home with him.
Phil's has special plates that they feature each day. Like Lazagna on Mondays and Chicken & Dumplins on Wednesdays...Both of which I look forward to going back to try. This is not a "fancy type" resturant as it is in a refurbished house...but that is fitting as this food is really Home Made Goodness.
