My husband and I decided to try Americana’s breakfast. Dinner has been inconsistent for me there, but I thought, how can you mess up breakfast? The Americana has a sanitation grade of 99 which is pretty perfect to me! I won’t eat anywhere the grade...More

When you want some good home-style cooking, the Americana is the place to go. They have daily specials as well as Italian dishes and sandwiches. It's very casual and most of the customers are regulars. No matter what you order, you will not go wrong.
