Iron skillet was a whole new experience for my family. Excellent service. The staff was super nice and aided us with our needs. Great communication. The food was great.

Salad bar with greens, all thinkable toppings, potato salad, macaroni salad, soups, and today's entree breakfast items until noon. Good visit. Although it cost $25. For the 2 of us. For biscuits and gravy, ham, potatoes, and bacon with a lettuce salad.

This is a truck stop with decent food and fast service. Great for a traveler with an easy stop off the expressway!

Stopped here for breakfast on a business trip last week. Buffet was good and inexpensive so i stopped again today while on the road once more. Friendly staff, good food, and prices that are hard to beat. Will stop here again when passing through.
