I went here for breakfast with my family. The eggs were rubbery and under seasoned. The pancakes were good and fluffy. The restaurant wasn't overly clean. The service was quick and friendly however. The main reason for the low rating was the poor quality of...More

This is a quintessential mom and pop dive breakfast joint and it is wonderful. All the food will surely shorten your life span, but it tastes so good. I had a half order of biscuits and gravy with home fries. A half order was enough...More
