This place is consistently good and the service is always friendly. They have some good desserts too. BUT, the wait time is a killer. It can take up to an hour. I would give this place 4 stars but the wait time is just too long.

Went for lunch here the other day. Ordered a poutine. It was surprisingly good; the best one I've had in a while. This is by no means a fine dining restaurant. However, if you are on a budget and looking for a decent meal, this is the place to go.

The waitresses were very nice but I was disappointed in the food. The poutine took forever after I placed my take out order & they said it was because the first batch of gravy was watery. The cheese curds were too big so the poutine was full of unmelted cheese.

I recently went here for brunch for the first time. The place was packed, but they found a place for our group. The service was really good and we all enjoyed our breakfast. As the title suggests this is a truck stop so don't expect anything fancy. It seems to be a favourite for Timmins locals.

I ate here my first morning, The food wasn't bad but it was typical of a small truck stop. Atleast their portion sizes reflected the price of it however selection was minimal.
