This place is very popular with tourists. It is usually crowded for breakfast . The items on the menu are priced fairly. If you order pancakes you will find out the syrup is very thin and watery.

The biscuits and gravy are a meal in itself. The regular three egg omelets were great. Pancakes galore. Covered with strawberries and whipped cream. You will not leave hungry or broke. Reasonable prices, ample servings. Service was outstanding and friendly.

Had breakfast for dinner. Never had Danish pancakes or danish sausage before. Really good. Tons of sausage on the danish packages with danish sausage. Really good. The danish sausage has a little different taste than American sausage. You can get either. But be a foodie...More

Honestly, it is a cowboy eatin' house. They may claim a vegetarian or vegan menu but I would not be to anxious to try it.
