Place is tight and busy, but breakfast was big and tasty. Eggs Benedict was very satisfying. Biscuits and sausage gravy was salty, but good. Overall a nice spot for breakfast. I'll be back

Hands down, the best breakfast in the area! The menu is great, but don't pass up the specials. They are creative and always give you a lot of food. I almost don't want anyone else to know this because it will be busier than it...More

One of the two best places on rt.5 to stop and have breakfast or lunch. Between Ricks and Dads you can't go wrong. You try them once and you'll go back again and again.
