The family was traveling to Crossville TN decided to pull in. We figured it must be good based on the number of cars outside it must be good. We were not wrong. The service was great. Food didn't disappoint.

Pancakes are the best I've ever had!! Country ham and hash browns aren't too shabby either. Good home town feel with great service.

Hidden gem of a place. The locals know it well. It should be a destination for travelers as well. Forget the fast food or chain places, local is always the best choice. Busy, but fast service and fast to the table.

Thick cut bacon, eggs, fresh fruit (so good, a mix of fresh cut fruits), bread of choice, coffee. Hmmmm. Lunch and dinner always have a special and it's something different. Great place for a meat and 3.

It's good home cooking, southern style goodness. Biscuits are delicious, staff is friendly. The place is dated, if you're looking for trendy, keep driving on to Chattanooga. If you just need a good home cooked meal, this is the place.

It is my 2nd go to restaurant in this rural area. I have always received good service. This place continues to deliver a good meat and three dinner. Nothing fancy but well cooked meat and veggies. Open 24 hours a day because of nearby motels.

So my wife and I spent a few days hiking in middle Tennessee. It's a fairly rural area and restaurants can be tricky to find. On Sunday morning, we found ourselves in Dunlap, TN and saw the Dunlap Restaurant. The parking lot was full which...More
