Great restaurant- famous to the locals. Great prices and food. Friendly attentive service, not rushed. Nice and attractive place for family or anyone! The kind of place you just don't find anymore.

There was a large crowd here, so I assumed I was in the right spot. Most all of the food here is made from frozen, cheap, processed ingredients and it shows. Definitely don't get the sausage.

Husband and I stopped for lunch, it was packed and busy. We both had the open faced beef sandwich, came with mashed potatoes, green beans and one side. I had veg. soup hubby had slaw. Very generous portion of beef, hot and tasty. Quick service, and friendly waitress. Reasonably priced, drink was a little pricey but offered free refills.

Local place. We were first timers, but you could tell the regulars because the servers know all their names. Green beans may just be a side, but they got some extra attention in the kitchen and were yummy. Big crispy chicken fried steak. Breakfast any time.

Good breakfast fare and service. Clean Place. Wife said her hash was just average. After leaving Colorado it was nice to stop at a restaurant that doesn't gouge with their prices.

This was our first time here, and we will most likely return. The turkey sausage served with breakfast was very good. Service was fairly good, and our food order was accurate.
