Thanks to the desk clerk at the Quality Inn for telling us about Nelle's. He also handed out menus for Nelle's as well. It's a nice, clean place and full of locals. Kinda off the beaten path but easy to find. When the menu says you can order breakfast anytime, you know it's a good ol' Mom and Pop. There... More

Food was excellent was able to sit and drink coffee they even put it in a go-cup if you ask. Wasn't planning to go there but due to motel 6 staff being rude and feeling that it's appropriate to have conversation on telephone when you're trying to ask them a question and making you feel as an inconvenience then a...

This place is old, run down and not that good. We didn't have breakfast but wish I had. Bathroom was dirty and no paper towels. I wish we would of just went to Subway behind this place.

It was mediocre. It wasn't bad by any means, but it wasn't great. The food was alright, the environment was clean, but there was nothing that convinced me to come back.

This is a truck stop restaurant. Average to good food. Not much on decor. Floor was in the process of being refurbished. Mopping and general cleaning going on while folks were dining. Wait staff was friendly and efficient

Tried this restaurant as it was close to our motel, and we needed a quick dinner. Probably would not go back again except maybe breakfast. We had their cobb salad. Nothing special. No alcohol was available that night which my husband frowned at. Not our kind of restaurant for even a quick dinner.

We got into our motel late and needed a quick meal. Nellie's was next door and convenient so tried it. Looked like a typical truck stop and menu was same. However, the food was very well prepared and delicious. Service was very good.

Well, I should know better than to ever order baked chicken quarters, they always come out overcooked and this was no exception. No seasoning, very bland as was the white gravy. But the mashed potatoes were very good and you got nice big portions of everything and home made apple and cherry cristp for desert. Pretty darn good for $7.99!... More

Stopped on the road for a big brunch with my teens... nice old world diner feel. A lot of locals but they were very welcoming. Food was yummy. Daughter's pancakes were incredible. Secret ingredient: vanilla!! Definitely a stop again on our next trip by!!
