The Highway Restaurant has the best biscuits and gravy anywhere! They will customize your order at any time without any hesitation. Go there today. You will leave happy full and still have money left for other things. Love this place.

Best breakfast and coffee in town. Food is always great, the servers and hostesses are the best. Ray and Nick always take a minute to stop by the table to say "HI". Been eating at this restaurant for years. Never seem to disappoint.
