I was expecting the normal taco bowl & great fixings but nope they changed it to make it faster. Now it has chips with some fixings & wasn't' very good.

Good food. Fast service. We were happy! Stopped here because we saw so many cars in the parking lot which is a good indication of a good restaurant in a small town.

Stopped with friends and ordered a Texas turkey melt and my wife had chef salad. Both were very good and what stuck out was the really fast service. Our friends fries were a little underdone but overall excellent. Chicken noodle soup was very good.

We stopped for lunch and the food and service were great! I loved my Deep Fried Califlower and Cheese Sauce and the Cobb Salad and my hubby loved his Deep Fried Pickles and Dill Dipping Sauce and his Burger with a fresh bun!

We have been here before, and the food is always great. We had breakfast here. The portions are huge. I would suggest splitting a breakfast. Great pancakes, omelettes, French toast and cheese curds!

Every time we pass through Motley we try to time the trip to arrive in time for breakfast or lunch at the Countryside. It's a solid diner with great breakfast choices, good coffee, and a friendly staff: everything one expects in a small town diner.

We stopped in to the Countryside, and I immediately realizes I had been there a few years before. The food was great, with large portions and good value. The bakery treats were also a nice thing to find.
