I guess I'[ missing something. We did come here on a major holiday and got in right away, maybe b/c there were only 4 of us. I ordered eggs 'over medium' as usual. They'd sold out of sausage and ultimately bacon. My 'over medium' eggs were not. They were a little more than 'over easy' but I can gag when... More

Not recommended for any meal or takeout. They don't salt anything. Overcooked sides? Check. Lame entrees? Check. Poor service with meth heads for waiters? Check. Check. Check.

This was a simple diner with great atmosphere. The food was amazing. There were twelve in our group and everyone ordered different things. Everyone raved about the food. They also have a fun market with organic and natural local items. They grow their own veggies in attached gardens. Great place.

A long time eatery in Georgetown, this place has great breakfasts, Be on notice that they no longer serve dinner, but are open for lunch. If you do eat lunch here, leave room for the great pies. Coconut cream is my favorite.

It's been a fixture in Georgetown for over twenty years. Ambiance is like that of a diner on the hi way in a small town in Texas in the '50's. Expect to wait in line if you go for breakfast between 9:00 and 12:00 on a Saturday or Sunday because the breakfast there is very good. In the early evening... More

I've been here a hand full of times and I can't recall a dec not meal. Pancakes taste like a spice has been added that shouldn't be. More like nutmeg or the spice mace. Either way, not good. Biscuits are not homemade and rarely hot, if you ask for HOT maple syrup, you aren't going to get it. I ordered... More

We enjoyed the 30 minute wait by walking around the herb and flower garden, checking out the attached country store, sitting in the shady beer garden (no beer at breakfast), then called to our table. I ordered the Avocado toast and eggs -- toast, smashed avocado, tomato slices, covered by two eggs over easy. And a cup of grits, which... More

My wife and I ordered tacos, enchiladas, and their sides of beans and rice. The rice was undercooked. The rest of the food seemed to be out of a can. For what they charge, the food should have been a bit more top-drawer. The service was nothing to write home about. Other than the aforementioned, it was fine...good water.

Hyped by the by locals but was less than expected. Service was slow even though there were many empty seats. Food was just so so and tasteless.
