This place is a real find amid the desert of airport hotels. Food is especially good, locally sourced. Service is friendly and warm. Pies are truly excellent.

Probably a 5 star in their category, like Elmers, Dennys, and other diners. The food is just your normal down-home cooking, and hasn't changed that much in 20 years. Enough variety you can go regularly, not a fancy dinner out, but a good substitute to eating at home when traveling. The pies are a little better than average, made in house but with a mass produces crust. A homemade crust really makes the pie, and they don't have that over mom. I like the fact they use some regional ingredients, like Oregon marion berries. The food I would give 2-3 stars, but the service at this location was a 5. Sarah made us feel welcome after a long day on the road.

This location was close to the hotel we were staying at and is the primary reason for our stop there. This appears to be a regional chain of diners with a large selection of pies. Our choices for the night came from the breakfast section. Our experience here was dominated more by those hiccups that happen at times. A waitress went home early and then a crowd appeared. After ordering then our waitress was back to say no more sausage. Other than that, it was an ok experience.

The restaurant was clean. The food was average. I did not try the pies because I wanted supper, not dessert. It was not unpleasant, but neither was is memorable.

We had a large party of eight and were seated almost immediately. Our server was friendly and made us feel like we were the only ones there. The food was good too and it was affordable. We could even enjoy a beer and blackberry mimosa with our meal.
