This was my second time and the food and service was just as great as the first time! Generous portions and friendly staff. Small and a bit off the beaten path but SO delicious!

One of the best kept secrets in the area, MrTs has a "down home" feel and a menu to match. Be careful when you order 'cause they expect you to eat. The portions are always huge and the coffee is grand. The staff is great and they treat you like family. For a wonderful breakfast or lunch, this is the... More

Totally-mediocre greasy spoon. Emphasis on the word grease. If you don't care about the nutrition of what you're eating, it's OK. The scrambled eggs pour out of carton in the kitchen.

This place is the absolute best breakfast place in the area. From the gigantic homemade soft biscuits, to the heaping piles of fresh hash browns, to the outstanding omelets and chicken fried steak... if you love breakfast, you will love Mr. T's. That said, it is a tiny diner with well worn seats and tables. Don't expect comfy seating or... More

Crowded and noisy, has a bit of a Harley-crowd feel to it. Portions are logger sized, meaning a normal person can't eat a full plate. If you are just a couple, I'd order one item and split it. Food is B+ to A-, good not great. No atmosphere.

Heading North on I-5 you can see Mr. T's, take the next exit. Keep turning right until you find Fir Street. Breakfast was the never-ending coffee refill, which is hard to find these days. Generous pancakes that are so thick you are given filled containers of maple syrup and you can ask for more. Plenty of parking on weekdays but... More
