Hearty dinners with a nice variety on the menu at fair prices. My favorite meal there is the smaller liver & grilled onion dinner with a baked potato (fewer restaurants are serving well prepared liver). Love the gravy! Well staffed with caring employees. I plan...More

Earl, of course, is no longer there. This is a very good, reliable restaurant. The service is professional and friendly. The menu is traditional coffee shop food with a Southwest flare. The chips and salsa are first rate as are the scrambled eggs and hash...More

Like the others, I don't think they deliver. LIke many restaurants, they probably provide take-out service. Getting some rest may be the one thing on your mind, but it's a delightful venue with an extensive menu. I... More
