My family ate here a 2nd time while on vacation. Doesn't look like much but the breakfasts are consistently good. Pancakes are large and taste great (especially their banana pecan) eggs, hash browns, biscuits & gravy - it's all good.

The food and service was good but the restaurant was old and dingy. We had an ac condenser dripping on us. The bathrooms were falling apart. Table was wobbly. They are in desperate need of a renovation.

We ate at Five Forks on a Friday, which was their fish Friday special. I had the special corn break crusted catfish with hush puppies, Mac and cheese, and a slab of corn bread. It was all excellent. Highly recommend.

They do have gluten free pancakes on the menu. I'm not so sensitive that I worry about cross contamination so I didn't ask how careful they are.
