I just had one of their breakfast specials which had good flavor...I had pancakes, eggs, hash browns and bacon. Customer service was very friendly and the service was fast.

The breakfast menu is great but the results are lacking. Order 2 special 6.99 breakfasts. The eggs are fine, but the potatoes are definite reheats from steak fries, the bacon either sat on the grill forever or was microwaved warm. Yuck - and the biscuit...More
