I love Tex & Shirley's at Friendly Center. The staff from the minute you are greeted at the entrance until you walk out with a full stomach are outstanding. The food is great and the coffee is the best!

Stopped for breakfast on a roadtrip down south and was VERY pleasantly surprised but how massive the menu was. There are like 14 types of pancakes, as well as LOTs of yummy southern style dishes. The server was extremely friendly and helpful with us deciding what to get. Very downhome country feel and very well seasoned and portion sizes were... More

Ordered typical diner fare; burger with swiss cheese and bacon and a side of fries. Crinkle cut fries were good not great. Burger patty was very thin poor quality beef. Sad when the ketchup is the best tasting part of the burger. I will say the waiter was very friendly and efficient. There were only diners at about 5 tables.... More

I took a group of 10 here for brunch and the service for such a large table was wonderful. They were friendly while setting up the table, got our order to the table quickly, and everyone's food was nice and hot. The server came by several times to check on us and to refill drinks. The price is great for... More
