The regulars are well aware of their good food, and daily specials. Nice place, friendly staff. two of my favorite meals are the Yankee pot roast. The most tender, flavorful pot roast I have ever eaten. and the RIBS....You can suck the meat off the bones! the BBQ sauce is one of the best, even among other rib joints. Reasonable... More

I both, eat in and take food to go. The food is always delicious and spot on! I can always count on a good bowl of soup paired with a yummy sandwich. And their French fries are my favorite. I am not a "fried food" person but when I tried their French fries, I fell in love with them. Whether... More

Came out of our polling place looking for somewhere to eat that wasn't on our usual rotation, and I suggested we try Downers Delight. Big mistake. Off peak, we were seated immediately, and a bus boy brought us menus and water. We spent a while poring over the extensive offerings, and perhaps in doing that we discouraged the wait staff,...

Service was attentive and cordial. The décor was nice... More

From the outside this restaurant looked very nice and inviting we were looking for somewhere that was not a chain. Service was less than desirable. We waited a while to have our orders taken. And then quite a while just to have our food delivered to our table. We ordered a salad so that should not have taken any time... More

The place has a huge parking lot, and a lot of spacious seating area in different sections. The food is great, and the staff are friendly. We've eaten here a few times already and always enjoyed it.

My husband and I recently ate breakfast at Downers Delight Pancake House and once again, were not disappointed. I was so excited to see the Bavado Omelet on the menu-which included bacon, pepper jack cheese and avocado - all of my favorite flavors combined in one offering!! It was delicious as was my husband's choice of the 2X2X2-2 eggs, 2... More

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner selections are numerous. I have never had a bad meal here. Inviting atmosphere and plenty of seating make this a good choice for a meal if you're in the area.
