Typical family restuarant. Breakfasts are very good and priced reasonably though get there early if you want to avoid any wait time.

A friend of mine brought me here as a surprise; the food was very good, the staff very friendly and very accommodating. Price was right - it is very easy to find, menu has a great variety.

Breakfast all day, lunch and dinner, Plenty of food served per portion @ very reasonable prices. We generally take food home for another meal. Best steak (12 Oz) and eggs around. Their BLT (w/fries or chips, pickle and coleslaw) for $4.95 can't be beat! Generally...More
