Great small family owned restaurant. No big signage just a small A Frame on side of road. Went on Sunday at 10am and place was packed. Waited 35 minutes for a table but it was for 8 people.

I have been here, mostly for breakfast, at least 10 times. I have never had a bad experience. It's a popular place and sometimes there's a wait, but it's worth it. This small-town, unsophisticated place has an extensive, interesting menu. It's fun when you take...More
