Reasonably priced as always. Two smoked pork chops, green beans & slaw, with loads of tasty onion straws! Yum. Breakfasts are also good. Older vintage building, epitome of the Mom & Pop places we love.

A hometown favorite is just that. Residents return again and again for that good home cooked food. Good service and a friendly greeting make this a nice stop on your Tipp City visit to the many shops of interest.
