This place offers tasty, hometown food that is served hot, in generous portions, at very reasonable prices. Always a pleasure to eat here when visiting family nearby. Just off Highway 18 in Britt. Try it!!

If passing thru Britt Iowa make this a must visit on your list. They are open for breakfast and lunch only. Breakfast portions are plentiful and the service second to none. The Hobo Hash is outstanding. We live in a town about 30 minutes away and drive here about once per month to eat. You will not be sorry.

This is not a place to miss if you are looking for a great meal with friendly service! The portions were huge and the price was small! Fresh, home made taste!! Check this place out if you are ever in Britt, Iowa
