First off staff was just all around rude, food was absolutely nasty. The taste of it all was just gross. Seriously never again will I go back.

The service is really slow. No attention. Food is OK. I thought I'd give it another try after a year and see if it improved having read some horrible reviews. It hasn't.

We keep going to Perkins at times and are actually disappointed. The soup my wife had tasted like canned soup and she did not eat it. I had a burger and was a typical one for Perkings. Service was slow but not terrible.

Where do I begin? This is by far, the most disgusting Perkins I have ever been to. It's outdated and extremely dirty. The smell of dirty carpet was strong and made me lose my appetite. My daughter used the restroom and there was no toilet paper, no soap and no paper towels. We finally ended up leaving without even ordering... More

This is a real disappointment for a Perkins. We try to eat at this chain if possible. We only ordered salads and the lettuce was wilted and poorly prepared. I had the end of a romaine stalk the size of a baseball in my salad. The waiter told me they buy their produce already chopped. They need to have the... More

While shopping we stopped for supper. My friends had never been to a Perkins before and we were not disappointed. I had the shrimp and he had a Sandwich/burger with cheese and onion rings on it. My baked potato wasn't that good and sort of hard on one end, but the salad and shrimp were very good. Also, our waitress... More

My friends brought me here for our Noon Dinner. I and one friend ordered the Southwest Avocado Salad. It was large, fresh and crisp, and good. The chicken was spicy tasting of cayenne and seasoned salt. There was a black bean and corn relish or salsa that had no particular marinade taste, but added to the salad. The tortilla strips...

Excellant friendly staff. The food reminds me of homemade style, comfortable. Lots of choices. Too many maybe, I had a hard time choosing, LOL. love the free pie on Mondays! Can't wait for our next visit.

If you've been to a Perkins before then you know what to expect. It's not flashy, but the food and portion sizes are decent and the prices are good if you go at the right time. This one is quite clean and the service is decent, but it's again not perfect nor flashy.

Most of the reviews talk about the slow service. It is terribly slow and the needs of the customers are infrequently checked by servers. Probably the worst Perkins I've ever been to.
