I've been coming here since I was a little girl. It has changed locations but the food is still great! Best gravy and biscuits in town. You must try a lottaburger too.

I have only eaten lunch here and the several times I've been here I've had hamburgers, hot dogs and sandwiches. Everything has been good. The restaurant is very clean, good service and friendly staff. Prices are very good! I will return when I' m in the area, I'm from Chattanooga about 30 minutes away.
