This is a good choice for reliable home style food. As it is convenient to where I am working when in town I will eat there for at least one breakfast and a couple of lunches during the week.

We had appetizers but the deep fried mushrooms were very doughy tasting and the chicken strips were burned. The waitress was attentive though.
