One of our family's favorite breakfast places. Chicken fried steak is huge and delicious. My favorite is the chopped ham and scrambled eggs with cheese and home fries with onions and green peppers. Staff is friendly and service is quick.

Great breakfast place. Weekly gathering for old military guys. Good wholesome food and generous portions. Open for breakfast and lunch. A little hole in the wall place in a small strip center. Don't be put off by the location, food is great and reasonably priced.
