This restaurant is usually top notch. What I have discovered is that if the parking lot is full, go somewhere else because there is no attention to detail by the cooks. We recently stopped in there for breakfast on a Saturday morning. We waited 15 minutes for a table. We did not order anything difficult. I ordered one egg sunny... More

Wonderful family style restaurant along I74. Great nightly specials, home cooked meals. Feels like I am at my grandma's house. Very friendly staff and service. Plus, an amazing selection of homemade pies

This is a great little respite in small town America. The food and service were great. It's a clean safe looking environment that is very inviting. Our lunch about $29.00 for three hungry folks. The pies looked fantastic, but alas, my waste line needed help. I will be back.

Remember the meatloaf? The pies? The friendly and quick service? That's what you expect from a small-town diner, and that's what you get from Busy Corner. I had the Roast Beef special, which was top notch... real roast... not deli meet smothered in gravy. The pies are fantastic... it's what they are known for. The apple pie is my recommendation....

We eat breakfast here every Saturday.They have a wonderful variety of choices. Their homemade pies are to die for. We rarely eat lunch here and supper occasionally. They don't take reservations unless you have a large party, so it can sometimes be quite a wait. We prefer breakfast over all their meal choices.

I quickly run out of superlatives when I talk about Busy Corner. Every meal I have ever had there is tops, both in quality and quantity. The pie selection has to be one of the best in the whole U S ! We always are with friends from the area and this adds to our enjoyment.

I usually go for the fried Chicken. Always delicious. Service is always friendly. Quick and accurate. Always jammed, that tells you something and usually by the locals. Did I mention the Pies. THE PIES! OH MY!!!

This is just off Interstate 74. The first thing I noticed was a lot of back and forth talk with the customers. The wait staff seemed to know most of the customers. I got the soup and sandwich combo for less that $6. I had Chili with large pieces of meat in it. The Ham club was big enough. They... More

We were returning from vacation and decided to stop for fuel and get something to eat. We ended up here. The food was excellent and the prices were reasonable. The service was very good and the menu offered a good variety. If you happen to be driving by, stop in, you won't regret it.

We stopped in for lunch and this place was nothing but perfect. We sat right down, ordered our food and had our food within 5-10 minutes while the place was substantially busy (only a few parking spots left). Our waitress (and hostess) were very friendly and quick with refills and checked on us just the right amount of times. If... More
