You might have to wait a bit for the food, but that is because the place is so full and busy but the food is so worth the wait. this is not low fat healthy food. this is truck... More

November 12, 2016 at approximately 3:00 p.m.----I came in to the restaurant and ordered 3 bacon cheeseburgers to go, which included a side salad with each burger. I also ordered an order of onion rings. The waitress brought the bags of "food to go" out to me, I paid and tipped her. I did not open up the bags before... More

A lot of my co-workers bragged about this place. I find it to be average. The place was clean. Serve staff was polite, but they took some time to get to us. Food was okay.

The "new' building has been there at least eight years that I know of. Business has been there over forty years. Breakfast is served all day. I had eggs, sausage, and pancakes, all very good. My wife had a healthy choice item: burger patty, fruit, and cottage cheese and she did not care for it. A little difficult to drive... More

Pretty basic fare for good value. I had the chicken fried steak breakfast for $9.50. Its handmade and fried on a griddle but the gravy is pretty bland, run of the mill FSA 1 gallon powder mix. Waited for some flavors to jump out but ended up dosing it with pepper. If you sit at the bar you can watch... More

Pretty good portions and prices. It's been here a while and if you want to eat somewhere local at an older diner lounge type place, this is a good off the beaten path find.

The Muzzle Loader was one of my family's go-to spots when I was a kid, which tells us they have staying power to still be in business all these years later. It's a no-frills, simple dish kind of place, better for breakfast or lunch than for dinner. The food is good and inexpensive, the service is always friendly and prompt.... More
