I have breakfast on a fairly regular basis. The food is good and the service is wonderful. They make it very comfortable to have a quick morning meeting and have breakfast from time to time. The biscuits and gravy meal is awesome.

We stopped here on our way home from Missouri. The staff was very courteous, the food was good, and the coffee was much needed. I would recommend for a family on the road.
