We took our grandtwins (almost 8) to the Recipe Box at lunch time. It's like a diner style & they honor active duty military with a 20% discount. Our grandtwins are dairy free, and I am gluten free. We ordered the kids meal chicken fingers...More

Flew back into the country early, arriving at 0900. Headed for the Recipe Box for my usual, half Mama's Breakfast. However, the sign for specials out front caught my attention. The quiche listed might not have been what I received, but it surely was yummy....More

They are breakfast and lunch only place, and no matter what type of food you pick, you'll be pleased! All portions are huge! I've never eating my whole meal here. In addition, I've never gotten something I was not impressed with, and I've been here...More

The Recipe Box is our weekend favorite for breakfast. They serve large portions, friendly service, the best coffee and with reasonable prices. You can't go wrong stopping here for breakfast or lunch!

Giant portions, half orders of most meals available, worth the 20 min wait for a great bfast and friendly staff!

This is a nice clean homey restaurant with a fantastic breakfast menu. Home cooked food at it's best. Cracker Barrel could take lessons from this place. Good food and excellent service with a lot of regulars so you know it's good. They keep coming back.

Great place for breakfast or lunch. Family owned. Home cooking without the cleanup. Staff is very friendly in a warm and comfy atmosphere. Half portions available for smaller appetites. The only place we eat breakfast outside of home.

Recipe box is one of my favorite breakfast spots! Seating during the week is quick. Weekends always have a wait because they are usually packed. Love the biscuits and gravy!!! Pancakes are huge Only negative to me is the plastic cups the coffee is served...More

Used to be very good, now I find the food little bland. The restaurant is clean and usually has a short wait.
