We found the oldest operating restaurant in Albertville, Al that began feeding the locals in the 1950's. 67 years later, they are putting out a quality meat and three that travelers look for when passing thru these charming southern towns. The old red faded sign out on the highway alerts you to the location of Albertville's first bus station turned... More

This place is just off the 431 in a location where you would not expect to find a restaurant, but I highly recommend looking it up. The breakfast was very good. Thick bacon, eggs cooked very well, and the service was very fast and friendly. The prices are great too. I wish it was near my house.

This little gem of a restaurant offered a really good bacon cheeseburger. It was fresh ground meat and had a really good flavor. The service was super fast and very attentive. I will be back often when I travel to this area!

We were just traveling through and saw the restaurant off the main road. The fodder was delicious and service was great.

My wife and I were just passing through Albertville at lunch time looking for something that wasn't fast food. We saw the sign on 431. If you don't see the sign you will miss the restaurant. We always love to find good vegetable restaurants when out driving. The staff was exceptionally friendly and welcomed us very graciously. This made us... More

I have eaten here a couple of times and it is slated as a good place to find some home cooking but I haven't found that to be the case for me. I feel the food is overpriced and I haven't really found anything that was as tasty as I had hoped. It does appear to be a favorite for... More

If you don't see the big sign you will miss it. Tucked off 431 this family establishment will not disappoint. The portions are generous as well as the prices are reasonable. The oldest continually operated family restaurant in Albertville, it has not lost any family charm. Worth. You will not be disappointed.

Pleasantly surprised. It is much larger than I expected. The food and service is very good. It is the go to place for breakfast and lunch for the locals. At the checkout, a customer says he eats there every day.
