Have only been here once for the $5 Monday burger special and it was very tasty. Burger comes with a large serving of potato chips. No fries here because I don't believe that they have a deep fryer. Nothing fancy but it does have a...More

Our first visit to Ethel’s was for breakfast. No complaints. Nice waitress, who was smiley, efficient and chatty. We decided that we were going to go for a lunch or dinner sometime too!

Taco Tuesdays are a must. Get there early and order as much as you can to help your server out. Also a great place to just chill and hang out while having a beer.
