Kind of out of the way. But program it into your navigator. You will see signed along the way to help guide you. You won't be disappointed. We had breakfast. Great big menu of choices to choose from. Sunday morning was hopping so food coming was slow but overlook that as its fresh and delicious. Best bacon I have EVER... More

We stopped by on our way to Niagara Falls. It's a short way off the highway, and we'll worth it. The restaurant is nestled near horse stables and farming area. My wife had an omlette, and I the club sandwich. Huge portions, great service, friendly staff and customers with a local atmosphere.

We had lunch here this weekend and everything was very tasty. My husband got the burger with blue cheese which was stellar. I got a mushroom omelette which was very good and came with raisin toast and a huge pile of hash browns. Our son ordered the child's "pasgetti" with a meatball which he devoured (and he is a very...

We went here upon a Yelp! app recommendation, and this restaurant was a phenomenal little gem. I wish it was closer to us. The food was great, and the service was wonderful. When we are in Verona again this is a must stop!

My husband and I always go to Nothin' Fancy for breakfast when we are in the area visiting family. We originally went because we had a coupon and we keep going back because it's so good. The prices are normal for NY state and you get a good amount of food. The servers are friendly and always refilling your coffee/tea.

We've always made it a point to stop here for breakfast on our way through Vernon. A small place off the main road between Route 5 and the back entrance to Vernon Downs, it's been a local favorite for a long while, and not without good reason. Service is excellent, as are food quality, quantity and preparation. Come hungry.

Have been to Nothin' Fancy three times in the last six months for both lunch and dinner. Food is good, reasonable and a very clean establishment. On all three occasions the waitresses were very efficient, pleasant and accommodating. Have enjoyed their Friday fish fry and salad bar on two occasions! We will be back!

Very good name for a very good place. Only had breakfasts there but the food is way above par, the service exceptional and the atmosphere ... nothin' fancy. I still rank it well, because I like this kind of traditional eatery and so, apparently, do a lot of locals. The wait staff will give back as good or better than... More

It will fill you up and not cost you an arm and a leg but for me there are better places to spend a bit of money and get a decent meal. I just found little that jumped out at me regarding the food. It was not bad but just indifferent. If I am going for a meal I would... More
