We were starving when we came in. We've ate at this one many times and it's great every time. We all had the chicken fried steak, there was so much on that plate I couldn't eat it all.

We visited just a few days before the masses for the Great American Eclipse. It was still a very busy day, having arrived about 2pm on a Wednesday for lunch. Considering what this small town diner was about to be subjected to, I think they...More
