They have great breakfast. Always get biscuit and gravy with chicken. Always good! The peach French toast is the best. I cant eat an entire order so we always split it. Really really good!!!

It is usually very crowded inside and on the patio so I would not advise bringing a dog inside. The wait staff moves quickly and efficiently. I really enjoy going to this restaurant.
