This is the place when you want good down home cafe food prepared with care and flavor. The owner is the cook along with his family doing duty in the kitchen with him. The waitresses are super friendly; they know everyone by name and keep an eye on you during your meal for any needs. They are only open for... More

I have dined here many times as it is a convenient location and has a friendly atmosphere. The food is good, but the menu is somewhat static, unchanging for the many years I have been a customer. I think my favorite meal is breakfast and it is served throughout the day. Lunch is good, but the menu could have more... More

This restaurant is set back in the corner of a shopping center. You hardly notice it's there. It's small, family run. Good food.. but don't ask for a poached egg, the guy on the grill is either doesn't know how to make them or is too lazy too.. It's fried, basted or nothing..lol Servers are friendly, nice and clean. good... More

I had breakfast here, several years ago, so decided to stop in for lunch today. There were several specials on the board (breakfast, lunch and desserts). I had the patty melt (slight discount from the menu) with side of green salad. The coffee was nice and hot, but quite weak. Food was good (albeit not the best patty melt I... More

I know it sounds crazy but sometimes we want to look at a menu with just a few options, and eat a good 'normal' sized portion of food for breakfast or lunch. Nothing 'too much' .... like a simple (and delicious) tuna sandwich with chips. Perfect. Kind of like eating at grandma's house. Simple, homemade and good. Specials are on... More

We kept seeing the advertisement in the mail and was looking forward to eating there. We ordered a omlet and when my wife got hers, the egg wasn't fully cooked. It was sent back to finish cooking and the waitress put it in the microwave. It still wasn't done and was sent back again. When we got it back it... More

This is one of a dying breed of small breakfast & Lunch joints.The owner and waitresses are very outgoing, funny and friendly. Fast efficient service, good food and good prices. I have been going here for over 20 years and it has improved with the recent change of owners. Lunch & Breakfast only, small space in a strip mall usually... More

This is one of those small and random places that everyone comes back to. The food is good (monte cristo...yum) and very affordable! It seems like they have the same regular customers every weekend mornings that come in and have coffee and read the paper. Its a very basic, homey feel restaurant with a handful of tables and average service.... More

Have been eating at Hungry Hollow for several years now, and they never disappoint. They only serve breakfast and lunch, and your choices for the most part, are pretty basic, but the service is always good, the food is fresh and cooked right and the prices don't gouge. They have daily specials, and the usual run of standard breakfast and... More

We eat here every Saturday morning. The staff - more than the food bring us back, plus it's close to the house. The menu is limited, it's is very diner, and not everything is really good. The breakfast is good, but really it's hard to screw up breakfast. For lunch stick to the BLT or sandwhich items, I do not... More
