“"Decent" Food, Huge Portions, Country Home Atmosphere...”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Have visited twice with mixed results on both service and food taste/quality. Both were excellent on first visit (breakfast). On second visit (breakfast), the food was "Ok"...and the service was near non-existent.

Portions are HUGE. Prices are higher than some, but not outrageous.

We may try here one more time...for lunch...to break the tie and determine if we will visit long term or cease visiting.

Be prepared for the level of noise/chatter...it is one of the noisiest we have every been in.

All in all...it is a different experience and likely worth visiting once to see how you like it.

“Great home cooking!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The Hungry Fox has been in business scores of years. They double the eggs in breakfast orders. Their homemade bread is made fresh every morning. Be sure to ask for homemade if your order has bread in it. Their prices are modest, considering the amount of food you get. Try their pies! Everything on the menu satisfies. The staff is friendly and the service is quick.

“Good down home cooking”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

It's cozy, nice atmosphere, good service and great food. their bread is homemade as well their pies. I love their scrambled eggs with ham and homemade bread toast they give you plenty of food. I am very comfortable in this restaurant, it's family oriented, have also enjoyed lunch in there a few times...thumbs up on the Hungry Fox.

“Too EXPENSIVE.”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

Food was great but we felt a lil over priced. We had been there many times before and we didn't remember it being so pricey. The food is very good but not worth the price.
