Good value, lots of food! We go there often when my family comes into town. Sometimes the buffet isn't stocked, but they will work on it if you ask.

Was told that this place was cheap. I can see why. Rude waitress. Told her about the obnoxious noises from the front door that wad interfering with my enjoyment of my Sunday breakfast. Asked to talk to the owner. She told me that she was in charged. Upon my return from the bathroom, found that she was clearing my table... More

We eat at LD's filling station almost every time we are in MC. Love the breakfasts here and the lunch and dinner meals are equally fantastic. They also have a brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, but we usually just order off the menu. Prices are all very reasonable. LD's is nothing fancy and the service can occasionally be a little... More

Heard this was the place to go on Sunday after church... Kids we were with did love the Buffet and the wait staff seemed very polite. But we waited for a long time for our food when they weren't even 1/4 full when we went in. I ordered the steak and eggs (4 ounce rib-eye) the steak was cut far... More

If you are looking for a great place to have breakfeast that serves your eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and toast just the way you like them, this is the place in Mason City. Filled up the tank for another great day on the RAGBRAI Trail. Lots of car memorbillia here also.

I sometimes eat breakfast here on Saturday mornings. They have a nice buffet but I usually order off of the menu. Their breakfasts made to order are very good. If you order something that has onions and peppers in it beware that there will be plenty of vegatables in your breakfast. I like it that way but some may not.... More

Typically, I would be visiting on a weekend and would enjoy the buffet and average service. The buffet includes typical breakfast buffet items (eggs w cheese, biscuits, sausage, etc) and has always been pretty tasty. The atmosphere is cozy and fits a face-paced Sunday buffet theme. Recently, however, I visited on a Friday morning and was disappointed with the lack... More
