Nelle's is a simple truck stop diner open 24 hours a day. Simple food, nicely prepared and ample in portion! Very reasonably priced. Minnie is very nice!

This restaurant was very nice to our large group and set us up with reserved tables. The wait staff were ready for us and our orders came out very fast. Very Accomodating.

The kind of place with that small town charm that I love. The food was homemade and delicious. The prices were very reasonable and the the serving sizes were generous. There is a bar... More

This little gem is in a Sinclair Truck Stop that isn't very inviting to a weary traveler. I imagine many travelers stop at Wendys or McDonalds when they gaze over at this place ... but it actually a quaint little 50's still diner inside. Don't expect greatness. Limited but adequate menu. The food was much better than my expectations. I... More

Thanks to the desk clerk at the Quality Inn for telling us about Nelle's. He also handed out menus for Nelle's as well. It's a nice, clean place and full of locals. Kinda off the beaten path but easy to find. When the menu says you can order breakfast anytime, you know it's a good ol' Mom and Pop. There... More

Food was excellent was able to sit and drink coffee they even put it in a go-cup if you ask. Wasn't planning to go there but due to motel 6 staff being rude and feeling that it's appropriate to have conversation on telephone when you're trying to ask them a question and making you feel as an inconvenience then a...

This place is old, run down and not that good. We didn't have breakfast but wish I had. Bathroom was dirty and no paper towels. I wish we would of just went to Subway behind this place.

It was mediocre. It wasn't bad by any means, but it wasn't great. The food was alright, the environment was clean, but there was nothing that convinced me to come back.

This is a truck stop restaurant. Average to good food. Not much on decor. Floor was in the process of being refurbished. Mopping and general cleaning going on while folks were dining. Wait staff was friendly and efficient
