I have generally positive reviews for food, since I generally love eating. This place made me hate food for quite some time after. Greasy eggs of questionable texture totally grossed me out. And the "famous biscuit" was stale and terrible. This is a warning. Do...More

As breakfasts go, pretty standard -but - if you want a breakfast into itself = get A cinnamon roll. Seriously big enough for a meal all by itself!

It was awful. So dirty. Floor was really bad. Food and liquids had been spilled. The whole place on a whole was dirty. I think they think they have a captive customers. It's a truck stop. But truckers should have a clean place to eat....More

It was strange realizing where this recommended restaurant was located - tacked on to the end of a gas station like a fast food restaurant, but indoors it was definitely a locally-owned cafe. I shared a Hobo skillet and fruit with a friend, and we...More

Service seemed friendly but was mostly absent. Honestly, the only thing we enjoyed was the lemonade. We both left most of our meals on the plate because the food was dry, flavorless overcooked or undercooked. In case of the cod, it was all of the...More

Tucked away in a truck stop, Starvin Arvin's did not disappoint. Our food was hot, delicious and filling American Diner fare. Service was excellent and we'll be back.

Saw the reviews about the cinnamon rolls. Words can describe how big and good they are. Most meals come with them as an optional side. Made fresh in house. Menu has good selection and everyone was happy and full when we left. We knew they...More

I was very suspicious when I saw that this was a combo with gas station, convenience store, and a Quiznos. Seemed like a recipe for disaster or worse - mediocrity. The staff was enthusiastically welcoming - but not at all overbearing. I just felt like...More
