One word = MILKSHAKE. Rest of menu is simple & straightforward. Hot & cold sandwiches fresh salads & ice cream. Homemade sweet tea is refreshing. Family owned business that is clean & efficient. Perfect for families with small children and seniors (no stairs).

French fries good. Iceberg lettuce in sandwiches a downer. Chicken salad huge, but no extras in it (celery, pickles, grapes?) Eight-ten waitresses, but spend more time chatting than serving. But lots of energy in the cheerful room.

Been coming here for years. There are not a lot of tables so you will have to wait if you get there at 6:30. Service is friendly, food is awesome, the kids love the dessert options. Don't forget to have a paper airplane contest with...More
