Good value but lacking the dining experience. Large portions... good children's menu. Friendly service. Clean, and a good choice on a road trip.

I've eaten here quite a few times. Most times I ordered their Bisquits & Gravy. The friendly wait staff made it a good experience. Well, WTF? Last two times the whole "atmosphere" had changed. Tables were sticky. A different crew of wait staff. Put more miles on the family car and head to Linneus.

Food was good, but service size not what you would expect at a truck stop. The wait staff was very efficient and friendly and for that reason I would recommend it.

This was recommended as a good mom-and pop type restaurant, so I went in expecting to get some good mashed potatoes and veggies. Forget it. I was hungry, so I got spaghetti that didn't taste too great, and a salad that was a couple of days old. I won't be back

Waitress was very good but the food was not. I ordered breakfast at 2 in the afternoon and was told the grilled home fries would not be good, to go with the deep fried. They were OK. The "over hard" eggs I ordered were way undercooked. The white was runny. The bacon looked like someone threw it in the microwave... More

We have eaten here for years , same waitresses always friendly and great food. In the past year it has been changing for the worse. First we noticed back in the winter they changed their turkey to some kind of processed crap, then prices started changing and all the food. I just went for the last time yesterday, my son... More
