My family and I were on our way to the Toledo Zoo and stopped for lunch. The tables we sat at looked were dirty. We used the restroom which was disgusting. The food was not as described when it came to the table.

Let's say that you're headed north on Interstate 75. You've just left Ohio and entered Michigan, and it's time for lunch. Your GPS won't give you much information about convenient restaurants (at least mine won't) and the last time you followed its advice you wound up driving miles out of your way. Now it's telling you that you can find... More

Do not expect a premium restaurant. The prices are low and you will get a big plate. I had a Burger which was good. The staff is friendly and helpful. The interior is so so. If you hungry than this is a good place.

Took the whole family based on trip advisor rating. Won't make that mistake so easily again. Very little is actually cooked. Burgers were very good, though not especially flavorful, and quite generous in size. Fries are fairly meaty and well done. Plenty to satisfy. The veal Parm was standard food service issue, bland, no sauce, no Parm, no spaghetti as... More

They do have parking for trucks and motorhomes. I have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here. The Friday night fish fry is the best, you get you choice between a... More

Went here with a friend last Saturday for our usual breakfast adventure. Both of us ordered omelets, which were a generous size, served with hash browns and toast. Very good for the money. Fast and friendly service. My only complaint was the ketchup bottle was a little sticky, but everything else was clean.
