The corned beef hash, home fries, biscuits and gravy and coffee were all very good. The staff was very friendly and service was quick. It's one of those hole in the wall kind of places that has great food.

Didn't like the meat loaf & the coffee was not good like it has always been. I love their breakfasts.

Great place, very fast, very affordable, very efficient, great food prepared quickly. Great prices, this place is packed all the time, but the turn around is very quick because they get the great home cooked food out quickly.

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch while visiting the area. We were seated immediately and our server was both friendly and very attentive. Our meals were delicious, prepared fresh and served nicely. It's a busy eatery and clearly a spot where the locals eat. If ever in the area again, we would most certainly eat here. We... More

Been going here for years for breakfast. Biscuits and gravy are the best around and the house omelette is really good too (topped with sausage grave of course). Service is good even when they are busy It there is a problem it's the place is small but the wait is worth it.

Thank ED B
