I've eaten here several times. Every time I've been hear the food has been great and the wait staff has been very attentive. They serve burgers, fish, chicken fried steak, chicken, breakfast, all kinds of sides and wonderful pizza. The owner is always here and gives his personal touch to each customer. Try it! You'll like it.
