Stopped here today for lunch and it was perfect! Home cooking flavors with plenty of options. I got the Saturday special chicken and dressing with tomato salad, broccoli rice casserole and apple cobbler all for $9.59. Great food and price and the service was wonderful.

The food was good. The service was excellent! Very friendly and fast. I have food allergies and everything was perfect. The atmosphere was charming throwback. I think it is worth noting that we visited dinner on a Monday night.
