Cold inside, cold food, greasy, fake creamer. Friendly people but they are living in the past that should be forgotten. The stars are for the ladies running it and their gravy.

The best biscuits and gravey in town, I stop by when I'm in the area for breakfast it's a small out of the way little cafe but the service and food make up for it . Try Rita's once and you'll come back again.
