This is a great place to eat. They have very friendly service. They have all kinds of great food. They are open when other places aren't. They have plenty of parking. This is a very convenient location.

We didn't want to venture far so we chose a restaurant a few minutes away. We opted for a veggie omelet each in a down home type of place. It was cheap and hit the spot. Service was very good and my coffee cup was always filled. Not fancy but dependable fare in a clean, simple environment.

They have many items on their menu. Most are not expensive. They have daily specials. Meals come with soup or salad. Our soups were wonderful. My meal came with 2 sides. I brought home my main entree to eat later. Service was fine. Small restrooms. Great parking.

We ate here twice for breakfast and have no complaints about the food at all. Good food for the price. Friendly waitress the first time but on our second visit, our waitress wasn't at all friendly or attentive.

I had the burger with fries and my husband had the eggs Benedict. We were greeted and seated right away. Hamburger was well done and the fries were great. The eggs came with hash browns.

Right down to the juke box. A large menu selection. You'll find the expected burgers and fries and milkshakes. There were also some healthy selections available. I'd go back for breakfast.

The service was friendly and fast. Typical diner fare on the menu. In our party we ordered hamburgers, grilled cheese and a turkey club. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

Food is okay (tough to bungle breakfast) but not impressed with the coffee. Come in 3-4 times and someone may recognize you. Prices are average, but coffee is extra for everything but the omelets. I prefer local diners when I'm out but honestly, Cracker Barrel is just 2 miles away

This looked like a popular place with a full parking lot on a Saturday morning. Service was very good and food was just right - not exceptional but not bad. Diner food. If anything, the prices were a little higher than I expect at a diner. But it was a comfortable atmosphere, clearly a lot of 'regulars' and everyone was... More
