The server was nice. Food was delivered quickly. My husband and I both had steaks. They where good. My favorite part was the roll and fried okra. The tea was good too. We would eat there again if traveling through West Plains.

Skillets is a plain cooking sort of place. We don't go for dinner there so I can't comment on that, but I love the variety of breakfast offerings they have. I chose a Mexican omelette with chorizo sausage and peppers including habanero and topped with...More
