Rodney and Lucille, the owners of Old Tymes are from Tennessee so they know Biscuits and Gravy!! We have tried them all over the US and still think these are the best. Nothing low-cal about them, but as a treat - oh yum!

Was seated very quickly for breakfast by a pleasant young man and a nice waitress immediately appeared for drinks and to take our orders. Food was fast and delicious!! Atmosphere was warm and friendly. Would definitely eat here again for any meal.

This place has great food and finally I got some HOT pancakes. They have a wide selection for breakfast, as well. The staff is very helpful and they aren't afraid to come back and see how everything is going. Great place to get together with family and friends to have a nice meal.

When you first want in you feel like you took a trip back in time. You walk through a small little gift shop and homemade desserts area before being seating. I went there once with my younger sister for breakfast and I tried fried french toast. It is clear why this dish was featured on food network. The second time... More

This eatery is pretty good. Food is average to slightly above. Many choices but the decor is a little dated. They have been around many years and could use an update. All in all I do recommend.

Average...that's it, just average...nothing special. Chicken fried steak was nothing special. Not sure I'd go back.

Found this place by chance and its a gem. Great service, and just good food. Bisquits are a must try, best we have tried and the french toast. Love when places leave the caraffe of coffee on the table. Inside country feel even has a small area were you can buy cute, souvenirs. Highly recommend.

Great home cooked meals. I had the country fried steak, 3 eggs, home fries and buttermilk biscuits and they were to die for, if I lived closer I would go weekly. While the food was great the service was a little inattentive. Not bad enough to stop me from going back, but enough to be noted refills took way to... More
