We always like to try Mom and Pop restaurants when we are in new areas. During trip to Columbia , we just happened to stop at the right exit to find Bill and Fran's! We arrived at dinner time, and our son opted for the daily special, a ground sirloin steak topped with onions, and he chose hash browns and... More

Lots of ingredients. Stuffed full. Home cooking was okay, not outstanding. Staff very friendly. Recommend breakfast over lunch and dinner.

this is low level dinner where you get very average food for low price . They have m many dinner specials for about 7-8 dollars that include meat and 2 sides. All are pre-cooked and sitting in warmers to be served. Pork was like leather, beef was plopped like slop and others seemed the same Club house was cheap cold... More

But we were starving and wasn't in the mood for German Food. We were out riding around and just happened to Stumble upon this hidden Hole in the Wall Country Cooking... More

This place is sooo good that I hate telling everyone about it cause I want to be able to get a seat when I'm in town. They have the best home cooking that you can find in a restaurant. The fried chicken is to die for. My husband loved the spaghetti. The sauce was sooo good. It doesn't look fancy... More

Welcome to homegrown goodness! Like stepping back into the time of real family dining, where they know your name and ask how's your mama. Dining is clean . Make sure you have a minute, food is cooked to order. Huge portions, home cooked yumminess. Highly recommend the squash casserole. Will be stopping again on my next trip through
