The locals like to hang out here for breakfast, probably because there isn't any competition around. But to me the food is just so-so, the ambience is negligible, and you have to pay in cash - no credit or checks. You won't get hurt here, but it's just a very basic setup. Service has been ok.

Sausage gravy isn't bad. Could use some work. Breakfast sandwich is good. Prices are normal . This is one of only 2 dinners in this town, this would be my guess why there busy all the time.
