Stopped in for family breakfast. Service was fast and courteous and the food was done just right. Of course we where the only table. I recommend the Razorback omlet.

Not a pretentious place, just good American food at very reasonable prices. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all great. They kinda specialize in catfish which is very good as are their homestyle burgers.

A small diner located in Mt. View that seems to be a must stop for the locals. Nothing fancy, but the breakfast is old-time country at it's best. Large fluffy pancakes, hash, omelets and more make this a great place to start your day.

Some locals rave about Skippers, but I thought it was just OK. The catfish fillets were fried till crisp - if you like them that way, this is your place. The wait staff was friendly and attentive.

Fries had been frozen and were tasteless. My catfish filet was thin. Did not enjoy it at all. The Ice tea was good though.
