My family and I went on a Friday night, the staff and service were above average! We ordered dinner and enjoyed the complimentary dinner rolls while we waited. Food was brought out quickly. Everything was looking up! Then the tasting began. My lemonade was awful, far too strong and bitter, very artificial. The chicken fried steak was massive, it lacked... More

Went for breakfast. Service was very good and the food was well prepared and came quickly. There can be a bit of a wait when they are busy. The hostess' estimate of our wait was accurate at 10-15 minutes.

The service was incredibly good - and FAST! The Country Green Beans were not overcooked and mixed well with onions and tomatoes, giving a great flavor. The beef tips were flavorful with a good, thick gravy. The yeast rolls were very good. The French Silk pie was rich and flavorful. Breakfast was also very good. The omelette was full and... More

Home style restaurant, friendly, great atmosphere. Located in a small strip mall, parking could be an issue but worth it. We had breakfast there and the portions were large. Biscuits and gray with sausage on top. Bacon was this and tasty, pancakes light and perfectly cooked.

We came for brunch at about 10:45 but we soon discovered it was either breakfast before 11 or lunch at 11 . So we ordered an omelet first and told her to bring out the meatloaf whenever lunch was ready .....at 11 (???) The western omelet was very nicely loaded with ham and bell pepper and topped with cheese as... More

Abe's is a little difficult to find in the back corner of the shopping plaza, but well worth the hunt. This is your classic mom and pop diner with great food and exceptional wait staff.

I will always return to Abel's because the food is consistently good! That being said my last visit to Abel's on 8/24/16 was terrible, due to the bad waitress...which is unusual as well, as we've never had a problem with any of the staff at Abel's. She never smiled, didn't tell us the specials (although we normally only come in... More
