Great little place. Quick service and good food and reasonable prices. Our waitress Darlene is such a sweet and funny lady! She made us want to come back and we did! Go give it a try and ask for Darlene! We had to get a picture with her! 💕

The restaurant is small and serves tasty diner style foods. Recent new management has provided a tasty experience for casual dining. Recent visit with friends we were seated promptly and served by an attentive server. Orders included two vegetable plates with 3 choices and a soup/reuben combination. The vegetable plates provided a sampling of veggies. All well prepared and tasty.... More

I don't understand all the accolades, but maybe that is because there just isn't much in the area. We had been wanting to stop since reading the high ratings, but I don't get it. I ordered the ribeye sandwich and fries. The sandwich was a little Wonder bun with very little meat. My husband had a burger which he described... More

I have eaten here once or twice a year for 16 years. Several of the waitresses were under 20 when I started coming here. The food is delicious, the service is fast and friendly and its a bargain. If you're in the area, stop and try it. You will not be disappointed.

The coconut merengue pie could have made a magazine cover. Hummingbird cake. I went with... More

We had dinner and breakfast here. Dinner was ok, had meatloaf and mashed potatoes and husband had fried catfish. Nothing fancy but plenty of food for the price. Breakfast was cheap, under $4, for 2 fresh eggs, lots of bacon and a pancake. Would visit again. Owner is looking to retire and wants to lease or sale restaurant.

This is a typical breakfast and meat/3 restaurant that remains quite busy. Unfortunately, it will be auctioned off soon. The owner has had the restaurant for years and wants to retire. Hopefully , another restaurant person will take over.
