The food is always good here. I usually get the spaghetti, but they have changed the menu and serve another pasta instead. Burgers and steak is great. I had the salmon and it was wonderful. Servings are large, I can never have a desert. It...More

I thought that this was a great little place. The staff are amazingly friendly and the food is hot and well presented. This is a great place for some down home cooking. We enjoyed the break from sandwiches on our West Coast Tour.

Big platters of comfort food are the hallmark of this chain. Hearty fare, big burgers, all-day breakfast, great milkshakes, huge desserts. Really great for families, carnivores, truckers and travelers. Not a great choice for vegans or dietary restrictions though. Friendly staff.

Many choices available from the large menu, prices very reasonable, food quality usually above average and the service is good. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner in a family atmosphere. When a 'where to go' situation prevails, most anyone will find something to suit them....More
