I am from this town and have always had good experiences. This trip was not! Our waitress slammed our plates in front of us for starters, not asking if we needed anything else. Then my husband had a hair in his gravy, to which she replied " it's just from the butter brush"! He was served another plate with another... More

In an age where most consumers are conscience of what is in their food. I don't recommend this place. "Coffee lightener" instead of real cream. "Whipped spread" instead of butter. Probably margarine in the grits instead of butter. Canned refrigerated biscuits that have a laundry list of preservatives and additives. Sorry folks, I'm looking for home style cooked breakfast.

A little love served up with a breakfast fit for a southern Mama on her day. Delicious cooking like Mama, but served to me! Best day with my children and husband without any stress and clean up!

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast. It was as close to home cooked as you can get. You walk in and order your food at the counter. When it's ready they bring it to you.

Have stopped there several time for breakfast and a couple time for lunch. I like being around happy and friendly people and their employees put it together well. If it is time to eat when we pass by we stop in for some soul food.

Service- Every time I come here I am always greeted with a hello (my name) welcome to Sarajay's. From my perspective the employees have a bond with their customers and employees. Food- It's nothing special but it sure beat's not making it yourself. Some food taste really good but most it is just average. Their is nothing special about the... More

Stopped in for breakfast at Sarajays. The food was good, service was good and it was cheap. This place is apparently a local favorite as it was really busy on a Thursday morning. I have no complaints. Would eat here again. I believe they are only open for breakfast and lunch.

This restaurant serves breakfast and lunch. What one would call a "good ole boys" place. Clean and good ole boys food.

SaraJay's is a great place to get a good home cooked lunch when you need to eat on the run. The staff works hard to get the food out to you quick, hot and delicious! Everyone is always friendly. The service is good. We eat there at least once everytime we are in town and would highly recommend!
