I normally only eat here for breakfast and it's not bad. I'm not a big fan of the pizza buffet on Saturdays.

We mostly go for the Pizza Buffet, which they have Friday thru Mondays, different hours for the days. You can request a pizza and they will make it for you. Their pizzas are pretty good, and the Buffet is only about $7 a person, so its a great deal, and you get your soft drink with the meal. We haven't... More

There is something about this place. The food is not that good but they always seem to be busy with customers. We tried it twice (lunch time) with no satisfaction. Maybe somehow the locals found those dishes that taste good and stick with them. Who knows? If you are from out of town, I would not recommend it. Go to... More

We when here on a Sunday morning for breakfast with our whole family, there were 8 of us. This place was amazing! the food was excellent, the service was great and fast! There is no way you can leave hungry, the portions are very big! We eat here at least once every time we visit Mattoon.

We took the girls track team to Pagliacci's and it was very good and cheap. They got us in and out in about 15 minutes.

Clean and friendly service with food on the average side. We eat there every couple of weeks because they do have a good pizza bar on the weekends and it is kid friendly.

Great place to meet & eat for family, couples, meetings, & all. Excellent efforts from staff to take care of you. Very good food, great value cost wise. We stop by on Sunday a lot after church. Fried chicken can't be beat.

A little hard to review this place. When you first walk in you want to turn and leave. Floor needed a good cleaning, walls were unadorned, tables were dark and old. But knowing I've had some really good meals at real dives, I decided to give it a try. It was an odd time of day so it wasn't busy... More
