As the title says, best breakfast. Lunch is good, but we travel 25 miles each way for the breakfast. Food is great, service is good and prices are a throwback. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

I've ate here several times and have not been disappointed yet. Everything I have ordered has been really good. Their home made croutons really make their salads special. You cant beat their $2.99 breakfast.

We stopped in for a quick bite to eat and it was actually pretty good. The place has been remodeled and everything is much nicer than it was before the fire. The have a wide variety on their menu. I have a rare condition and cannot have oils, butters, mayo, miracle whip, salad dressing and on and on. The waitress... More

Returned this last week after they rebuilt from the fire. It was clean, staff was friendly, service was quick, and the food we ordered was great! Large portions for the money. I returned within a few days for breakfast, and it was really cheap, and tasted great! You can't beat a full breakfast for under three bucks!

The owners should have cashed out after the fire vs. rebuilding. My husband & I recently went back after their reopening to see if they had improved...believe it or not they are actually worse. My 10oz. NY Strip Steak, was more like a flattened, flavorless, subpar piece of "some" cut of meat, which produced 6 oz. of pure fat &... More

Would love to see this restaurant in a different location in a more updated building. The food was EXCELLENT! The service was EXCELLENT! My advice...they need to cut back on their chicken dish portions or raise the price. That is waaayyy too cheap for that much food...I can't imagine they're making any money off those dishes with 4 chix breast.... More

The food is always very good. The servers are always friendly. The interior is a bit dated, but the food is what we come here for. Every dish we have tried has been really good.
