Ate here on a Sunday. The food was great and so was the service. Very polite servers and owners. If you like real Southern food, you'll like this place.

We went there for breakfast after hearing so many glowing reports. I was terribly disappointed. I ordered eggs scrambled with a little cheese, bacon, and rye toast. (All breakfasts come with Auten's "smooth potatoes") The eggs tasted awful! I thought it might be the cheese, but I tried some with no cheese and they were just as bad. Besides, who... More

Auten's is a great choice for lunch or breakfast! I have yet to have a bad meal here. It's great to be able to take my children to a place that still offers home style cooking that is like what I grew up enjoying. Would have posted pictures, but food didn't last long enough on the table to do so.

If you are looking for a great, no frills, breakfast, this is the place. I was promptly seated and my order taken. Within ten minutes my hot breakfast was delivered. It was very good and done to order. Wait staff are very courteous and polite.

Breakfast anytime you want it. Eggs cooked the way I requested, and a ham steak worth its weight. Spouse ordered scrambled eggs, bacon with a side order of pancakes. Fortunately, our waitress, Whitney, recommended one pancake with the option of ordering a second after we see the first one. Thank you Whitney!!!! The pancakes are ENORMOUS. Place is clean.
