Obscure location and pretty simple interior. Seating is limited. Staff puts love into the food for sure. Cooked old way with salt, pepper even beacon grease in green beans. Would go back just try other menu items.

Old hole in the wall restaurants are usually the best and this one does not disappoint. Had omelet, pancakes and tea and ahhhhh. Hit the spot and didn't break the bank.

This is a small place, but don't let that fool you. The food is great and so is the wait staff! The prices are reasonable and you will get full.

We were passing through looking for a local breakfast place and we found it. We did arrive just a few minutes after breakfast stopped being served. I asked and the owner, who is also the cook, said he would be happy to serve us breakfast. It’s that kind of place that only serves breakfast and lunch. The place is small,... More

Average at best. It WAS good, now even the service is lacking. You get what you pay for I guess. Not worth the drive across town anymore. I hope the owners go back to their old cook.

Small building doesn't look like much when you drive up to it, but do yourself a favor and walk in and grab a seat. If you have to wait, do so. We got fried meatloaf, beef and gravy and rice, fresh cooked greenbeans, sweet tea & dessert is included in the lunch price, but we couldn't hold it. This food... More
