The omelets are good along with most other breakfast dishes. My only disappointment has been the biscuits and gravy. They were not good at all. The biscuits appeared to be made from bagged frozen and the gravy was just not good. The service has always been friendly and the prices are right. I wish they would open the blinds during... More

Great atmosphere, cozy,like being at home or at a very dear friends house. Everyone remembers you & treats you like family. The food never disappoints & prices are extremely reasonable. It is at least a once a week visit if not more for myself & family.

We stopped here for breakfast and the food was quite good. I liked the fact the hash browns were unsalted. Two breakfasts for just under $15.00. Good food at a good price!

Like other restaurants in the neighborhood, this is a mom & pop place with multi course meals at reasonable rates, who offers senior discounts. My... More
