Some of the best home cook food. The atmosphere was great. Service was good and the portions were very large. I would definitely go back!

I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! Been a long time patron to this restaurant, morning noon, or night you get great service that makes you feel at home, as well as plates of fresh cooked HOT food. Will always go here. Breakfast is fabulous.

The egg sandwich was cold and the cheese was not melted. However, the other food was delicious! I think it may have just been an off day. I'll gladly go back and try their breakfast foods again.
