We have eaten here a few times and have never had any problems. The food has been great, the service fast and the staff very friendly. On November 30, 2016 something was wrong. Do not know if it was a new girl waiting on us or what the problem was. We were here for dinner, a party of three, two... More

I heard how great this local's place was but both times we visited we were disappointed. The salad bar is very small. They'd be better off serving their own "house" salads than offer the "salad bar" they have. Several items were not available on their menu and it seemed as though it was more of a bar atmosphere than a... More

My husband and I went there a couple of years ago and the place was dark and looked well worn.We had a hamburger that was over cooked and a salad that had some brown lettuce in it. I got sick the next morning . the price was cheap but you get what you pay for. never again

Great place to eat, clean and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Food is really good here. Stopped a lunch time and had a choice of indoors or out doors. Warm that day so we went inside. Air conditioned and comfortable. Will return again.

We read the reviews and was expecting a much better experience and food than what we received. From the beginning, the waiter seated us, took our drink orders, brought our drinks and then disappeared. It took a good 25 min for him to return to our table but did apologize that he was "busy with other tables" when I observed... More

Don't come here looking for fine cuisine; this is a country-style place that serves down-to-earth comfort food. My favorite is the Texas burger- a 6 oz burger on Texas toast with chili and cheese. The burgers are hand-made and fresh, and cooked to order. The Reuban is another favorite. They have a variety of all-you-can eat specials every weekday.

We ate breakfast. Was no wait. Food was very good along with the service. This is a local joint. Would eat here again. Recommended.

We just wanted to stop somewhere for a quick bite. But we were surprised at how good our meals were. The fried chicken was one of the best we ever had. Service friendly and great prices. Better than most of the chains right on the same road.
