“Not very good”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

The staff were friendly but that was about all this place has going on. The food was pretty bad, sort of like it was all microwaved. Plus a very weird bathroom setup.

“Bad food”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

We went to Route 55 on June 12th as we stay in the Ashley Hotel. We found out that its under new management and ordered the chicken fried steak with green beans and baked potato. The beans were canned, the potato had been sittng around for awile and the roll that came with the meal was taken out of a plastic bag and heated up in the microwave. It was so tuff to eat that we just left it. The chicken fried steak was a good piece of meat, but it had no flavor. My wife had the same meal, but with mashed potatos, and there was so much white gravy on it, you could'nt see the potatos. Will not go back.

“Made it up the canyon on Highway 55 and need a break?”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

This is a stop off the highway cafe with excellent service. Have not tried the desserts but the display is enticing. The food is above average and abundant. Priced fairly.
