“This place is a dive!”
Reviewed 26 November 2012

I sat at the counter and after three or four bites of food, I observed the cook picking his nose! He then wiped it on his pants and continued cooking - with no gloves on! This totally spoiled my appetite and I had to leave - they still charged me. I asked the waitress what the cook's name was and she said Rodney. Well Rodney, I have some advice for you, son: If you're gonna pick your nose while you are cooking, at least have the decency to either wash your hands afterwards or put on gloves before you start cooking again. Nobody wants to eat the leftovers from your nose slime! The food tasted awfully greasy and the atmosphere was very tense. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

“worst place in texas to eat”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

brought the family in for a Sunday brunch. Heard some old lady yelling at the waitress. People walking around cussing. food was terrible - lori's special tasted like a bowl of grease. If you are new in town and looking for a place to eat - avoid this place - save your stomach the aggravation.

“Always busy”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

This place is always busy but always good. Parking is difficult at best and usually frustrating.
