We stopped in for lunch, it is a very quaint quiet place. We were directed to the food line and ordered from the cafeteria style menu. Service was great, all the staff was very polite. And the food was very good. We hardly talked. We'll...More

We've visited this restaurant annually. Unfortunately the service was lacking and the cashier was rather rude today. Last time we will come.

We were passing through on a Saturday and this place had really good food. We chose the lunch buffet where you had a choice of meat, two vegetables, and a roll or cornbread. The servings were very big and filling. I would definitely stop here...More

As a native Texan from a small town, most little towns have a place like this--or if they don't, they should. We stopped in on a whim on a drive back home from Waco. The ladies at the shop next door recommended we have lunch...More
