The food is good and you’re always served homemade food. The atmosphere is definitely of a farmhouse and the servers are always friendly.

The employees of the restaurant are the friendliest, nicest, and most helpful you could ever hope for at a restaurant. The food is plentiful and down home cooking, just delicious. You will not be disappointed if you stop by for lunch or dinner.

Unique setting in an old farmhouse with history to go along with it. Our waitress was more than willing to share the history with us. The onion rings had a type of breading I haven’t seen before with a yummy sauce to dip them in.

Hand battered onion rings were an extra large serving and some of the best I've ever eaten. Served with a honey mustard for dipping, these were a tasty ring for sure.

We would never have gone here if the desk clerk at our hotel hadn't recommended it. Abilene is a small town without very many restaurants, and this is really "off the beaten path". Turns out it was a good side-trip, though. Our food was very...More
