I had the Sausage Gravy and Biscuits. The biscuits are different than I am used to. They are the texture of a fluffy cake. My friend loved her Diner breakfast. She commented on how large and good the old fashioned ham was.

The food and service were great. We went 2 days in a row and had everything from lunch to breakfast and weren't disappointed with the meals. You will not go away hungry. You must get the homemade bread.

The food is always good and more than you can eat. They are always busy so leave a little extra time. Best food in town.

People were waiting outside to get in!, not the best seating procedure. As people can come in both front and back. The servings were huge!! Delicious!! Cinnamon rolls are to die for!! Hash browns were perfect!!

Always great. They remember my order. The only way you won't be waiting in the summer (especially on a Saturday) is to be there early. If I go on a Saturday, I'm there by 6:15.
