My girl found this place ahead of our trip. Very much a hometown atmosphere. Food was good. Waitress and staff were friendly. Would recommend. Prices are reasonable. We had breakfast. French toast was good.

Great, great, great. Huge portions, McDonald’s combo meal prices, home cooked southern style food. Friendly staff too. The pies are incredible. Worth a trip to eat here. Don’t worry about the “presentation”- just eat the food.

Never been here for dinner, only lunch...if you like home style country cooking then this place is for you. Burgers are pretty good and the deserts are generally pretty good too.
