I got the biscuit with egg & cheese... such a good biscuit! Definitely wasn't from a can. My friend got the short stack & it was sooo good. Thickest pancakes I've ever eaten. Such a hole-in-the-wall feel. Loved it. Friendly Staff. Great prices.

We like to try local places. We like "hole in the wall" places. This was just "meh." The dust on the door moldings and ceiling fans were off-putting to start. It's a "seat yourself" come-on-in friendly atmosphere. Lots of biscuit options on the menu for breakfast, so I figured I'd start with that. Food was hot when it arrived. I... More

Obscure location and pretty simple interior. Seating is limited. Staff puts love into the food for sure. Cooked old way with salt, pepper even beacon grease in green beans. Would go back just try other menu items.

My neighbor are always looking for a good value breakfast. The view from the road leaves a lot to be desired. Once inside, we ordered breakfast. The waitress was prompt. The food was outstanding. Large plate of food. Menu is limited, but they have what normally is ordered. Great food, atmosphere is ok. If you are looking for a good... More

Old hole in the wall restaurants are usually the best and this one does not disappoint. Had omelet, pancakes and tea and ahhhhh. Hit the spot and didn't break the bank.

This is a small place, but don't let that fool you. The food is great and so is the wait staff! The prices are reasonable and you will get full.

We were passing through looking for a local breakfast place and we found it. We did arrive just a few minutes after breakfast stopped being served. I asked and the owner, who is also the cook, said he would be happy to serve us breakfast. It’s that kind of place that only serves breakfast and lunch. The place is small,... More

Average at best. It WAS good, now even the service is lacking. You get what you pay for I guess. Not worth the drive across town anymore. I hope the owners go back to their old cook.
