Not only are the prices very inexpensive, the hostess and wait staff are remarkable. Excellent food and very fast. If I'm ever near here, I'll stop in. Can't say enough good things.

Amazed at the fine way that this old family restaurant manages to accomodate so many travelers so efficiently. The food is good old American comfort food. Had their chicken fried steak and a slice of coconut cream pie and loved every bite.
