Stopped in to gas up and went to grab a bit to eat. Sign said "Wait to be seated". So we did. Seen 3 servers walking around, no one bothers to acknowledge us. Waited 5-10 min. (Not really sure) to long IMO. So we left.

We had been driving most of the day and stopped for a bite. The food was okay. The salad bar was good, the buffet was marginal.

My wife and I recently dined at Grandma Max's. It was late evening on a Sunday and I had the buffet. It was pretty dried out and not very good. It might have been better had I tried it several hours earlier. My wife had breakfast and said it was on the greasy side. As I said in my title,... More

Enjoyed the lunch buffet, which was quite complete- soup, salad, several mains, dessert. Not super duper high quality, but very tasty and convenient location off of Rt. 70.

Ok so they are in a truck stop, without truckers you wouldn't have ANYTHING you are used to. Now that we are past that,Grandma Max's is part of a chain with a good rep. They feature good basic food. If you want food you would see on the Food Network, this ain't it, but a good fresh (not frozen) hamburger... More

A very busy truck stop is where you'll find this OK eatery. Food was good and portions large and as a "if I don't eat now" solution, this definitely fits the bill.

We found Grandma's online while heading east from Colorado and decided we would order some lunch to go from there instead of one of the fast food chains. A great decision indeed. The woman who took our order was extremely friendly and made sure our order was just right. Once back on the road we enjoyed a hamburger that reminded... More

Very good service, hot tasty food, good coffee. Prices are about normal for breakfast buffet. Will come back again. Only drawback is needs a better syrup for pancakes and French toast.
