This was a decent place to ea. Their name changed to JJ's Roadhouse in 2015, They had a good breakfast and a buffet for lunch and dinner. Good food with a limited selection. Unfortunately they are closed due to a major fire in July 2016

We go back to visit my Mom regularly and go to Crystals primarily for lunch. Good buffet and a decent menu.

The food was good, but as we drove into the parking lot there was a sign that said "Last Day of Business May 20 th.". We checked with the staff and yes they were closing. So look for some place else to eat.

They need to find someone who knows how to cook! It's hard to screw up biscuits & gravy but they succeeded, they were cold, runny, flavorless. Over easy egg was even a mess, hashbrowns barely cooked & coffee is very bitter. Place reaked of cigarette.

This place is gross. They obviously smoke in the place during down time. The food is all fried carbs and heavy meat. The decor needed updating in 1980 and not in a kitchy way.
