One of the Saturday specials was a 4 piece broasted chicken dinner ($9.99) which hubby and I split. Came with cole slaw, potatoes (we chose mashed with gravy), choice of soup or "Salad". Cole slaw, chicken and potatoes were very good. I was not very hungry so figured I would have one piece of chicken and the "salad". All I... More

Hey, want a good quick meal? Pretty old place but with lots of locals it seems to be not too bad overall.

This review and the 5 stars is strictly for the food and the service. The atmosphere is a little dated but it all appeared clean. It's a small local cafe and we thought it was amazing. Prices were very good too. We were hoping to find a little diner with lots of home cooked food. That's exactly what we found.... More

We were seated quickly. No wait on a Sunday! Whoohoo! We ordered breakfast. The eggs, bacon, sausage, and waffles were perfect. It was over $20 for two. Which is kinda pricey for breakfast. We will become regulars!

Upon arriving here for lunch we were told that the regular cook was not there. What did we know ,but we tried it anyway. We were sorry that we did. My husband said it was the worse meal he had.

The food in general is home style goodness. The mash potatoes are just deplorable soupy messy thingy! like how do you screw up mashed potatoes? right? The carpets are pretty tacky and need to be replaced. The wattresses are very pleasant and have been there a good long time and know all the regulars. That's a good thing. Give it... More

I believe this establishment has been here for 25 plus years. It had been at least 20 years since my last visit. A few days ago, I decided to visit around 9:00am while waiting for work to be completed on my vehicle. There are a number of retirement communities in the area, which appear to be its main customer base.... More

I ate here about a year ago and got diarrhea shortly after eating. Thought enough time had passed and maybe things were better. Service here is very good and prices are reasonable, but anything served fried is a hand grenade! Had breakfast last Friday morning and, sure enough, 15 minutes later I got hit with an urgent diarrhea just like... More

Try the country fried steak :-) Very cute little place with friendly waitstaff. Homemade pies daily! Very popular with the older crowd and exceptional prices!
