This was recommend by the people at Bear Creek that was just outside of Chester. Biker-type people seem to be the norm here. Breakfast is really good and plentiful. Very friendly service and homely.

We have been stopping here for breakfast for years...no matter what we order, it's delicious! Of course, we have our favorites...the chile verde omelet is excellent as are the biscuits and gravy (worth the calories once in a while). If you imbibe, you can't go...More
