The atmosphere was average. Our waitress did a nice job. The omelets were very good. Limited diet drink options.

Stopped here on a road trip with the kids and honestly wasn't expecting anything spectacular. The staff was very friendly though, and the food we had was amazing. Thick bacon, bread pudding waffle was delicious, BLFGT was great, chili mac burger was delicious, and the...More
