This was right down the street from the place I stayed, so I tried this restaurant for breakfast - and it was yummy! Piping hot coffee, eggs cooked perfectly - and I ate every bite of my hash browns.

This is a favorite for a great breakfast, not fancy, just "greasy enough" to add that necessary flavor to a good, all-American, breakfast favorite. When I simply want a breakfast meal with eggs, bacon, waffle or hotcakes - 24 hours a day, this is my choice! A little hidden but easily findable! Just not on a street you would normally... More

Enjoyed my waffle and bacon and egg biscuit for lunch! My waitress was nice as usual and the food is good, but also pretty basic. Nothing fancy, but that's also its charm. I am a regular, probably come in every 4-6 weeks and always leave happy. If you love breakfast, you'll find something to fix the craving here.

This place is right off 1-24 at the first exit in Kentucky. The service was fast, and the food was quite tasty. The place primarily features breakfast foods, but there are sandwiches and dinners, too.

This was one of my better breakfasts while on a 3-week road trip. The omelette was so darn fresh and delicious, I would absolutely visit it again. Now, the meal did not have high end ingredients but they were decent quality and expertly prepared. The waitress was very friendly and the prices were extremely reasonable. I was told it was...

I am not sure if it was the crowd or if they were short handed but for a full dining room there were only 2 waitresses and 1 cook. It took about 40 minuets for our food. Basic waffles with watered down syrup and two eggs and bacon not cooked enough. Very affordable prices though I must say. Coffee was... More

This place is convenient to the first (or last ?) I-24 exit in KY. It is nothing fancy -- just honest food at an honest price. It looks like and functions similar to a Waffle House, but appears to be locally owned and operated. I view it to be a "good value" place because I've paid more for worse food... More
