I'm on my way to a meeting at the hotel across the parking lot and stopped here for breakfast. Although the menu lists quite a few items, nearly all of them are too big and expensive. All of the 55 plus breakfast items are packed...More

Some Perkins' franchises can be sketchy. Not this one. Clean, friendly servers, decent speed of service. The food is what you'd expect at a place like this - no complaints. Good place to stop if you're traveling on I-75.

This Perkins is across the parking lot from the La Quinta and is a good place for travelers and locals to eat. The French toast was hot, crispy and delicious. The early morning staff were bright and cheerful.

A late night stop at Perkins will never happen again. They are understaffed, the place looks dirty, run down and smells dirty as well. Tables and seats are damaged, windows leak when it rains, window caulking is evident and does not solve the problem. If...More

Hubs & I eat out several times a week, & while our dining times are varied, we usually prefer to order breakfast. For that reason, any restaurant that can provide consistently tasty & well-prepared breakfast foods at any time of the day is tops in...More
