The chicken and waffles are definitely the best thing in the menu. On this visit, Had the breakfast burger. I don’t recommend it, however. The hash browns just didn’t work. Tater tots would have been better Also had the fried sandwich. This was very good.

Breakfast omelet was satisfactory. Coffee was also satisfying. Service okay as well. So, all in all, a satisfactory breakfast.
