We stopped for a quick lunch and were not disappointed. The food was hot and fresh. The restaurant was clean as were the restroom facilities. The children were happy so success.

The staff looked as if they we very confused about what to do. Took way longer than I would have thought to get our order. It was correct and hot. No drive thru. They still have the all you can eat buffet for about $9.

The service is super, super slowwwwwww. The iced tea that I got must have been over 24 hours old. It tasted terrible. You would be better off to just drive on by this restaurant--nothing good to say about it.
