Service excellent and attentive. Portions are outrageous. We could of split one plate with four people. Enjoyed my breakfast for three meals. Pay the $1 and split your breakfast. Comfortable atmosphere and worth the visit.

Average food and service; not anything to "write home about". Had heard so much about what a great place with awesome food but from when I ate there about 5 years ago it has gone down hill considerably.

The tables are fun to read, and there is an eclectic mix of antiques, vintage, cowboy, kitsch, and more. We were there for breakfast. The food was o.k., and the... More

First off... you must go hungry. There is a lot of food. I think this eateries purpose is for the hard working farmers and industrial workers in the area. Ones that can burn off all the calories and still survive. It was very crowded at noon on a Friday but we were seated with 6 to 8 minutes. Was told... More

Another one of those great small town mom and pop cafe's that I search the countryside for. Super service, huge servings, so we usually split an order, great home cooking, what more do you need? It's a small place, only open mornings till 2:00, and usually there will be a wait. The counter is non reserve, so for 2 people,... More
