Stopped in with co workers for lunch, I had the hamburger wrap and it was ok. The staff were very nice and had the southern charm.

This restaurant stays open 24 hours on Friday and Saturday nights. We stopped in late on way home from airport. Ordered breakfast. I especially enjoyed the biscuits. Bacon, eggs, and hash browns just the way I like them.

I had the meatloaf here and it was quite good, home cooking here, but not a lot of customers. The second time here I had pie and it was good also, but again not many customers.
