Another stop on our mission to try new eating experiences as we travel home from Up North, down I-75. This was an average diner. It was pretty busy and appears popular with locals. The dining area was crammed with tables, making it difficult to navigate...More

We have only been here for breakfast -- it's wonderful. Good home cooking with great servers -- you will probably have a bit of a wait on the weekend, but it is worth it!
