I've been a few times and it always trends the same. Food is good but service is like they are trying to drive people away. Last trip today, and final trip, resulted in a frigin one hour wait before the waitress came to tell us they were out of gravy for chicken fried steak. When I told her we were... More

I had the pleasure of eating breakfast here each morning for a week while I was visiting BR. The biscuits are homemade and very good. Everything is made in short order and I never had a bad meal. I would recommend you give it a try for a casual meal if you are in the area.

The restaurant stays busy but we always get a table. The food is homemade and delicious. It is an old store now restaurant and home style people working there. Prices too good too! Breakfast is best!

Nothing fancy here, just cafeteria style institutional food, the breakfast is the best thing going here, if you can put up with the red-neck locals the biscuits are some of the best any ware. Good cheap food, nothing five star by any means but good.

The waitress we had was about as rude as one can be she made me and.my two small children wait 35 minutes before even asking us what we wanted to drink. We ended up walking out after not having our food after another hour. I have no clue how this place is open its disgusting inside.

Excellent breakfast dishes served hot when you order cooked. All the ol' timers in Livingston parish can be found here for breakfast or lunch. Food is good with specials for lunch each day. Right on corner of Range Northbound in shopping center. This was once part of James Drug store which moved but they kept café here. Enjoy the fun... More

Nothing fancy but good folks and service and good simple breakfast! Great biscuits, gravy, country fried steak and yes, grits! If your looking for a place the locals go then try it! Probably not for everyone but my husband found it and had to take me there, I was not disappointed!

The food is great, when you finally get it, but it takes a while! If you wanna meet local folks that know about the area and what's going on, this is the place to go. Just don't be in a hurry, because they aren't! Fun place to hang out if you don't have anywhere to be.

Great breakfast. Probably the best in town. Large dining area and large menu. But everyone who works here seems to be related and they all seem to hate life. The past 2 weeks we ate here and waited 45 minutes for breakfast. Most people in there waited just as long and everyone was angry. This week we sat down and... More
