Ordered a cheese omelette, pancakes, and grits. The cheese omelette seems slightly overdone but ok. The pancakes, grits, and coffee were very good. About $10 for breakfast.

Drifter's is usually very full on the weekends and it's easy to see why. There is a rather large menu with a strong southwestern showing. Great food. Great service. Great prices.

My husband and I enjoyed a free breakfast at the Drifter Pancake House each morning that we stayed at the Drifter Motel. We were able to choose from a list of about six or seven breakfast choices. This is a welcome surprise from the other...More
