The title is exactly what you get. The best home cooking. The prices are so inexpensive and the selection is appealing to all. The breakfast is one of the best. I had two eggs over easy with 4 strips of bacon, the most excellent hash...More

Big large portioned breakfast, that will last till way past lunch, for a very low price. Service is first rate. Large and very clean. Big menu and lots of specials. All three meals are served. A keeper!
