Informal place with better than average food and always good service. A regular choice when we just want good, inexpensive food.

Ate here on Father's Day, no wait when I arrived. Was able to get a table in the back. Ordered a spicy burger (think it was a buffalo spice burger). Meal was okay.

Great breakfast options with a buffet served on Sundays. They also have the best pies (17 varieties ) of which I have tried fourteen and loved them all. They opened a second location in St. Cloud.
