Large portions of homemade food for reasonable prices. Their breakfasts are delicious. Try Momma's pancakes with bananas and pecans...you'll leave here full and satisfied.

The food was hot, there was plenty of it, and it was price reasonably. My only complaint was they were a little slow. When in the area, I always stop here for breakfast. The staff is friendly. Good place for a family.
