Good place home style food and seating. There is always a wait to be seated. I think that speaks for itself. There is plenty of parking.

It is a small local restaurant that treats you like family. Excellent home made food and friendly service. It offers a relax place to eat or just drink coffee. Do not let the decor keep you from enjoying an excellent meal. Could use a renovation.

Hot and Tot is a place where local families go for breakfast at a decent price. The place is clean, the portions are generous, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Tip: If you like your food spicy, ask the staff for salsa.

Have been eating breakfast at Hot n Tot forever (OK, 35 years). Have only had lunch there once. Waitresses are friendly, but I generally seat myself to be served by a cutie waitress; we like to flirt with one another. Biscuits and gravy is one...More
