Restaurant details

We have been to this restaurant several times in the past and have always enjoyed the lunches here. Like most restaurants, the meals are high in sodium content, but all have good flavor. They have their country style, daily lunch specials, but also have sandwiches and salads. You’ll see a lot of local people here and they are always have plenty of customers at the noon hour, so you may want to get there early. You place your order at the counter. If it is a plate lunch special, you are immediately served, and if it is sandwich or salad, they will bring it out to you, which is usually quick. The building is nothing fancy, with an open floor plan and a glass front which gives one a view of the highway out front. It’s is definitely worth a try!

Oh my! Macaroni and cheese! Fried pork chops, rice and gravy , cornbread! A gorilla burger! They do breakfast and lunch. It's worth it and the owner is an ok guy.

Brocato's has really good tasting home cooking! You will have trouble parking at lunch time, but the wait is usually minimal. They have plate lunches that change daily, as well as tasty burgers and sandwiches, and large salads. My hubby and I go regularly, and never leave disappointed! This is definitely a local hangout - you'll see several people each time you visit. Friendly staff and good food - is there anything better?

The parking lot was packed. The service was excellent and the food was delicious! The hardest part was deciding what to order. The fried pork chop was soooooo good. The stewed chop looked good as did the baked chicken. I saw a burger that made me say 'oooh' and a grilled chicken salad that had to be delicious. The vegetables were well seasoned and the portions were very generous. Sam is doing a great job!

On our way to Texas, knowing we have a long day we opted to find a local spot and this was a gem! We were greeted by the owner, Brocato himself, told us to help ourselves to drinks and to sit anywhere we'd like, after placing order at counter and he would bring our breakfast to the table. Must have been fresh eggs, the color and texture were perfect! He says they have out grown the present space so they are moving up the road in a month... Check it out!!!
