Way over priced with lack luster service. Service is like they are doing you a favor. Breakfast anywhere is usually good. Why pay such high prices? No atmosphere not great & too expensive. Try Denny's a better deal all the way around.

The food is fixed old style, no frills or fancy gimmicks, just well prepared food, and don't forget the glazed cinnamon roll. We of course have our favorite, but if we stray from our norm, we never have been disappointed. Lots of food served fill...More

Been going here for years. Good prices and consistent food, but this last time it was just ok. My eggs were anything, but soft boiled and the tomatoes on the side had no flavor at all. Still, I'll give them another shot since I enjoy...More

Don't miss the huge delicious cinnamon rolls, or the best chicken fried steak with cream gravy west of El Paso.
