The wife & I went for a late breakfast, the food was outstanding, but the service was a little show. The wife had a taco salad & I had the big foot chicken fried steak & eggs. I would recommend both dishes. They serve alot of food at a very good price.

We went here for the milkshakes but the menu offered so much more. It's very extensive. Service was great and they even had oldies from our time playing! :)

Portions are pretty big on most items so come hungry. You may gain a pound after a visit. Breakfast and lunch were very good, great service.

Good place to meet friends for a big meal. Staff is friendly and usually good on the service. Easy access off of I-5.

The portions are always so huge. We have gotten into the habit of splitting our order and it is still plenty for each of us.
