The wife and I have gone here for lunch for years. The food is good and served fast.
We really like the Pony shoes. the cost for us and drinks out the door was less than $17.

This is a popular place in my hometown. It is not fancy, but the food is good for the price. The service is fast and friendly. They are open for breakfast and lunch. I often order lunch for my office because lunch service begins early. No theme, no hype, lots of regulars.

You gotta love a place that just doesn't really go for that flair that has nothing to do with providing a great product and a great service at a great price. Not the flashiest place in town but certainly one of the best bargains. Breakfast crowd is local if that tells you anything. The locals always know a good place. Never heard of a horseshoe before I stopped here. Now I know there's breakfast and dinner horseshoes. I myself couldn't handle the breakfast horseshoe so I grabbed a pony by the reigns and got after it. Whats' a pony? It's a pile of good food. Start with eggs, add has browns or fried potatoes. Throw on some breakfast meat. Pour on some cheese sauce or gravy and enjoy. Comes with toast. Friendly folks. Service was great. Not too far from Lincoln's Tomb.

I have been to Ritz's many times for breakfast and lunch. They have real good breakfasts. Everything is always hot and their home fries are excellent. Also, if you are looking for the signature Springfield dish, the horseshoe, you will find one of the best here. My favorite is the fried pork tenderloin shoe. I will warn you: you will need a nap after you eat one of these.

Our group of 12 to as many as 20 has breakfast here once a month. The omelettes are large, delicious and inexpensive. The service is great. All orders arrive at the same time, the coffee is refilled without asking and the waitresses are all friendly.
