Went in for breakfast and it was great. Went back for BBQ at suppertime and it was even better. Great menu with lots of variety. Waitress was excellent, sort of a down home place that makes you want to come back.

Great little place with good food. Clean with friendly service. My husband said the lunch special was outstanding (chicken and asparagus). I had a burger and onion rings. It was delicious. Will return.
