Large portions of food; the big cinnamon roll was very good. Other patrons & wait staff were loudly discussing politics in a disdainful manner. We couldn't wait to get out of there.

Food is fair, not great, but they don't cheat you there. Service is sloooow, and they are often busy, which makes it worse.

We always come here at least once when we're in town, usually for breakfast. They have everything you could want, huge biscuits, and even bigger cinnamon rolls (which you can choose for your bread option... but plan on taking most of it home in a doggy bag). The place is always busy, the food is great, and the service is... More

Lots of food with very good flavor for not a lot of money! The only reason why I don't give them five stars is because they took a long time to sit us down. But great food!

Ate mid-morning breakfast here and really liked it. A throw back to the way breakfasts used to be before everyone got so health conscious, meaning huge portions. I had pancakes, eggs, and bacon and thought they were very good. Left about half of pancakes so I could help my wife eat her omelet. Omelet was huge with a little too... More

It felt like time travel back to the fifties. Same decor. Same menu. But, as promised, large servings. My daughter and I had open-faced beef sandwiches. She loved hers; me, not so much, but I ate it and it wasn't as much food as it appeared.

I reviewed this place once about a year ago, and, although sadly tired inside and out, it was acceptable. Today, staying at the Holiday Inn Express across the street and on foot for the morning, I ventured in again ... big mistake. This place is just plain filthy with dust and dead flies everywhere. Must have been a recent hatch,... More

Food was good, but serving are huge. If you are watching your weight, you may want to reconsider or split a meal with someone.

The cinnamon rolls are amazing! Great food, excellent staff. Every time I am in Montrose, I have to get me a cinnamon roll. I've been coming here for over 20 years. Love it!

The menu is what you would expect from any dinner. The food was okay along with the service. Decor hasn't been updated since the early eighty's. We had two specials, both were 6 bucks each which was a great price. Nothing really special, but in a pinch worth the stop.
