This restaurant offers a buffet or from the menu. Everything is fresh, ample portions, friendly service, reasonable prices. We went on a Thursday evening and had a fairly full dining room. Check the hours, they open Thursday but not sure what day they close.More

Breakfast all day, what's not to love? Buckwheat pancakes? Oh yes. and the biscuits were divine. Hot coffee in huge cups and the waitress was very funny and accommodating. Reasonable prices and delicious food.

We had the sweetest waitress who was completely overwhelmed. Food took over an hour. Hamburgers were on stale buns with small patties. It has such great promise.

One of my favorite eateries anywhere. Haven't been there for 20 years and the meatloaf is still the best in the world. Onion Rings are a close second. Great wait staff. BlackBerry cobbler is heavenly. Visit the peacocks.

Sundays are fun days...pick from the menu or the Salad bar/buffet. How can you beat fried chicken, pot roast, fried shrimp, stewed tomatoes, string beans, scalloped potatoes, sauerkrat n hot dogs...in addition to the salad bar with dessert thrown in too? You can't.
