An aunt was raving about how good Cindy B's is...she ordered dinner specials for the 4 of us. Her friend went to pick up the food. The "chicken & dumplings" had no visible chicken OR dumplings. It was nothing more than a cloudy, watery chicken...More

Breakfast food anytime is my favorite thing! If you cant find something to eat here you arent trying! The chicken and dumplins arent a regular item but if they have them GET THEM! Love supporting our local businesses!

Locals swear by this place. Those who have lived around the US find it average. It is a nice place to meet and have coffee and B-L-D. The setting is nondescript, but clean; service is friendly. My wife loves it; I am indifferent. Good specials.

Great little hidden gem. Very family oriented atmosphere and staff were very friendly. Breakfast was just like from home, great!

Has all the classic diner foods and then some. Popular spot for the locals as the food is good and prices are reasonable.
