Heard about it. Read about it. My expectations were set too high. Service was slow at 11am on a Saturday with a full house. Coffee was good. I had eggs, sausage (boyfriend ate), pancake with blueberries, biscuit with gravy and grits. Eggs not cooked right,...More

Typical comfort food like chicken fried steak, pot roast, sandwiches, burgers, fried pickles. The sweet potato fries are served the way I like them - no sugar or cinnamon.

Because of many of the reviews, we stopped here for lunch while passing through. Definitely not disappointed! Everything we had was yummy, especially the chicken and waffles. Someone at the next table ordered the pancake stack - 12 huge pancakes - and it looked amazing....More

Enjoyed the pecan waffle topped with lots of pecans and caramel. Hot fresh coffee. Husband had chicken fried steak with sweet potato. Service was fantastic. The decor is 50s and 60s.
