I read numerous review before heading here for breakfast. As we entered, we saw this sign. For the size of the meal, the prices were reasonable. The pancakes are plate size. My egg meal filled the plate. AND Shirley cooked our meals. Glad we stopped...More

We had breakfast one morning, it was ok but not good enough to get us back for a second time. The building needs much attention and the food needs a little loving care added.

We went to this roadside diner for a breakfast with two young children. Obviously, this inconspicuous place has long-time clients. Food was just OK, but the facility needs much attention, in and out. We all agreed that we are not locals with any special story...More

You have to go to breakfast its so good but can be very busy !! The cheeseburgers are one of the best. It looks like a whole in the wall restaurant but can't beat the food !!

The food at Shirley’s is good but the restaurant itself is in need of some love. Exterior is greatly in need of paint and maintenance. Interior needs some love, so although it may be clean it gives a poor impression.

This is a very quaint place. That leaves me with early fast food memories. Prices are very resonable. The cook is often your server. Large portions and friendly service makes this a must eat at.

The building inside and outside is run down, so if that bothers you, no need to stop. We had breakfast there this am based on some local referrals. Very good service and very good food. Biscuits and gravy plate was really good, hot and tasty,...More

Response from HavocDog | Reviewed this property |
I highly doubt it due to the small, cramped nature of the place. Very difficult to maneuver around and through the tables/chairs. Not much space for a dog to sit/lay. It is pretty tight. But the food is good!

Early (5:30 or 6:00) until 2:00. They apparently have a big breakfast business.
