A great place to have a generous meal. PR only serves breakfast and lunch. We had breakfast and found the staff friendly and prompt. The menu is quite extensive and very reasonably priced. The food was excellent. The surroundings are not elegant but are spacious, clean, and nicely done. The decor reminds me of East coast diner. Nany of the... More

Fast, friendly service. It was packed & there was a fairly long line waiting to be seated. We were seated in 15 min. Very popular place. The pace of the service was bordering on 'frantic' perhaps due to the long waiting line. The coffee was great and topped-up three times. My order was basic: scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and all...

this is a good breakfast place. the service is excellent, the food is very good. beverages are kept filled by dedicated beverage servers. I've been here several times, weekdays aren't as crowded as weekends. you can expect a wait on weekends.

This place just serves breakfast and lunch. I had Chicken Fried Steak plate with mashed potatoes and black eyed peas. Definitely good comfort food. Place was packed. Definitely a must try.

Serves a very good home style breakfast. Service can be a little slow depending what time you go. Great coffee. I was disappointed with the biscuits. They came out cold. Overall it was still good.

Can't say enough good things about this place. Very busy on Saturday morning, but seated our party of 6 very quickly. Menu choices almost overwhelming, but food was out surprisingly fast. Coffee cup kept full the whole visit. Food was delicious. Wish I lived closer to this place!

This place always receives top ratings in People's Choice locally, so we decided to give it a try. Wow! They deserve it!! There probably will be a line when you get there, but don't worry, it moves really fast. You get coffee almost at the same time you sit and once,you order the food is out quickly too. And is...

I asked to go to Poor Richards Cafe for my birthday this year. It's famous for its fabulous breakfasts. Maybe even better known for its chicken fried steaks that take up the better part of a large plate. Now I don't eat much steak but I love bacon. Poor Richards serves four (4) slices of bacon. I ordered the Southern... More
