Outstanding service! Food is quick and hot. Hometown type menu. Why go anywhere else. Excellent decor, wins out over the competition.

I fell in love with bisquits and gravy back in the 60's here when it was called Odens Cafe. I decided to stop in for lunch. The people are still some of the best folks you can meet. I ordered aburger and fries! Yummy food!
