Best veggie soup around. Hubby loves the chili cheeseburgers with coleslaw. Fried squash, like mama makes. Best place in EFR!

We heard about this place from a "local" at the RV resort we were staying at nearby. We tried the buffet for lunch. Veggies weren't too bad, but not seasoned to our liking. The pork chops were good, but the ham was over done. Fried chicken was average. The salad bar was the best part of the meal.

This little restaurant is a great place to get an inexpensive, quick home style breakfast. They also offer lunch including a buffet. They aren't open for dinner. The waitresses are attentive and super-sweet. Just make sure your bring cash with you because they don't accept credit cards. There is an ATM on premises though.

This is a classic southern small-town restaurant with very good comfort food, excellent value, outstanding and friendly service, and unpretentious decor. They are open breakfast through lunch (close early afternoon). Lots of repeat business by locals; your food will be served on a styrofoam plate with plastic dinnerware, so nothing fancy, but you can get a very tasty and filling... More

My buddies from work and I go to Orr's every Friday for lunch. We absolutely love eating at Orr's. For my money they have the best hamburgers in town or should I say cheeseburgers. They can put all the toppings that you want on there including bacon. Now if you're really hungry you can try the double cheeseburger. But if... More

Basically lunch buffet but they do serve breakfast. Unfortunately, they use paper plates and plastic forks and spoons due to the lack of city sewer. Food is average but cheap.

Not fancy, I fact we were a little hesitant to go in but trusted the reviews. We're glad to know ahead that it's all disposable plates, cups, etc. Nice staff, efficient. Grits, biscuit and spicy sausage were you would expect. The omelets are large made of 3 eggs and come with Angie serving of home fries which were a bit... More

Just so you know, this is not a fancy restaurant; Styrofoam plates and plastic flatware, and a true "Retro" feel. However, if you're looking for a really great breakfast at working-man prices and you enjoy being greeted with a warm smile when you enter, this is your kind of place. The daily lunch buffet is a bargain at twice the... More
