Thought we'd try this place out right off the bat for breakfast, very busy and parking was tight. Got inside and liked the atmosphere and motif but it the allure ended there unfortunately. The waiter was young, confused and lacking in general. Food arrived pretty...More

Didn't look like anything special from the outside but the down home atmosphere and home cooking were very good. I had waffles and my wife had an omelette and both were very good

Place has been here forever. Ambiance is comfortable. Nothing pretentious and no airs here. Sirloin in the butanas was VERY tender. This appetizer is big enough to be a meal in itself. According to the other party at this meal, catfish was better than that...More
