The best place for breakfast!! Yum! Omelette with hashbrowns. Reminds me of a family owned waffle house. Everyone super friendly.

It's the diner you grew up with or should have. Very good breakfast choices.. the skillet meals are my favorite things to eat. Plenty of help working gets your food to you quickly and takes care of you throughout your meal.

This is a typical diner, but it has a variety of choices and the food servings are plentiful and tasty. Breakfast is available all day. The wait staff is fast and friendly.

John's has traditional diner fare. My favorite being the vegetarian wrap. What makes John's extraordinary is the waitstaff. You are treated kindly from the moment you walk in the door.

This restaurant has good food. The kitchen is open so you can watch them cook. They don't serve dinner. The service is great.

Just stopped by on way to Reelfoot and son had a John's skillet and i had an omelette. Both were cooked in front of us on griddle and both were excellent. Staff is engaging, friendly and smiling. Food came quickly. Will be back!
