My husband and I both had the breakfast quesadilla & hash brown meal. Super yummy! Great heat ups for the leftover, huge portions too. Somewhat greasy,served over the hash browns. But we we're very pleased. :-)

Last night was the third time we have tried this restaurant. You would think we would learn, but I am always willing to give a place a fair chance. This was "3 strikes and they are out". I ordered the "country breakfast", a mistake, the eggs were small, they looked like they were "medium/small" sized, the pancake was large, thin... More

I had the meatloaf it was home made. It came with instant mashed potatoes green beans from the can no seasoning and canned soup. The portions are large and price cheap, so if you are just looking for something to fill you up this is the place.

I've been here several times over the years, most recently last week for breakfast. They certainly deserve some positive ratings for their friendly service (and quick too) and their amazing home cooked meals! We always have a great tasting meal no matter what we order and usually have some to take home for lunch the next day!

I've eaten here 4 times, but it's only been for breakfast. The breakfast specials are wonderful and the breakfast sandwiches are delicious. I will try to get here for lunch or dinner soon! The staff is always friendly and Michelle is great server!

This place had customers standing in wait at 5:30 in the afternoon. I never did figure out why. The food was uninspired, very very ordinary. Maybe the prices are low or reasonable for this part of the country.

Great place for good homemade meals with good portions! The soups are always good and you can't go wrong with the breakfast there also. I have never had a bad meal there and I have been going there for about 2 years. Sometimes the waitresses are a little bit slow, hence the 4 stars. The place is almost always busy!... More
