The tenderloins taste very fresh - not crammed with breading. They have a lot of substance to them. They are made to order so they are not under a heat lamp. All of their food is great!

The food is very good. The cook is very nice. It's a bit grungy though. It has a definite antique diner vibe. No drink or water refills were offered. The male customers spouting horrible, racist comments need to leave or shut up. There are other...More

Fantastic family-owned small restaurant. A hard-to-find small town business. Locals know the best places to get a quick meal. They go to Artie's!

Back to visit friends and decided to get the tenderloin fix. This is a very shabby place. Owners are friendly, loin was good but I was concerned if I would get sick afterwards. I do not think I will return

I think their tenderloins are a little over rated. They were seasoned a little heavy with garlic but cooked well. The service was very good. The business is a little shabby but the food was acceptable for the price.
