We've eaten there several times: The meals and the staff have been consistently great. This is not a big-chain operation, but a comfortable local and modern family owned and operated establishment. You must give them a try. If you are lucky, you may catch one of their monthly antique and muscle car cruise-in's... good fun.

Took us over 30 mins to get food. We were some of the first people in the restaurant and I feel like the last people to get food. It was only 2 people. Do not come here is your looking for a quick breakfast. I feel bad for the waiter cause the food took so long.

Burgers and onion rings always great. Homemade coleslaw excellent. In house roasted turkey like home at Thanksgiving. Very busy with occasional wait but worth it. Costa and his family do a great job. Either take out or eat in at least once a week

Not bad; not good. Very mediocre food. Some veggies were from the can. Several open tables to choose where to sit. We made our choice due to several dirty tables. They were never bussed while we were there. The dirty tables outnumbered the clean ones. Prices were decent. Just filler food of no note.

This town really needs a great place to go for breakfast but this is not the place. Greasy eggs and hash browns taste like cardboard. Slow service. Been here twice and same awful experience both times. So disappointing. Should be a goldmine restaurant with decent food.

Always saw large crowds at this restaurant during dinner hours and decided to give it a try. Wow were we disappointed. Just a bad meat and three!! Not only that, it is basically like a cafeteria. You walk up to the counter to place your order and take your food back with you. This is obviously a place where people... More

Friendly servers, terrible service. Coffee was weak, orange juice was not good. Placed an order for egg whites and French Toast-50 minutes and several assurances later from our waitress still no food. The manager/owner-told us when we said we had waited 50 minutes, and when was our breakfast coming up-he said: "maybe in 3-4 more minutes as they had not... More
