We brought a party of 8 with no wait. The potatoes they serve are wonderful. Also a very friendly staff.

Stopped for a late lunch, didn’t realize they would be closing soon (3:00pm). Staff was very polite & helpful. Absolutely no pressure to finish. Food was EXCELLENT- very good and portions were generous.

Be warned. When the menu says the sandwich has 1/2 lb of bacon, they are not exaggerating! BELT was fantastic! Others had bacon and eggs and omelets and cinnamon swirl cake. Al were excellent!

We came to this place based a review found in a "pin". Also came to TA to verify the first review. Knowing that it's still "season" (before Labor Day) we expected a wait and that was the case (about 30 minutes). I asked for a...More
