One of our favorite restaurants for home cooked food! Good selection and good prices. Nothing fancy ~ in a shopping center. Everything we have ever gotten there has been good ~ cooked as ordered! šŸ˜‹ yummy! Sometimes we call in orders to bring home as well! šŸ‘šŸ‘šŸ‘

We have eaten here several times and just love their old fashioned pancakes and omelettes of course. Owners are very nice.

We had lunch there yesterday. The pinto beans came out almost cold. The corn was straight out of the can no seasoning. The fish was very good. 1/2 of the beef tips were good the other half was grisly. The first waitress was not friendly and had no personality. Fortunately she went off duty half way through our meal. Her... More

We went for breakfast around 10am. Although there were two or three tables open, none had been cleaned so we had to wait. Pancakes were good, but a little dry. The rest of the breakfast was fine.

We had heard a lot about this restaurant, but had not been close enough at mealtime to stop in - until lunchtime today. We're glad we did. We had a super burger and chopped steak with fries and fried okra, respectively. Both were cooked right and we both ate every bite, so we didn't get to try out the cobbler... More

We went for a Sunday morning breakfast. In a word, the food was ... OUTSTANDING. Portions were generous, food was prepared to perfection and very tasty, and service was friendly. I recommend this place highly.

An unassuming little place I visited for breakfast....a waiting line at about 9:30am on a Friday, and worth the wait. The food was great, seems to be a local place to eat. Very pleased with the food and service!

I wanted breakfast for lunch. The only advice I can offer is please don't get biscuits that have been microwaved.. The gravy was so good but the biscuits were like rocks.
