Went there for lunch last weekend. We thought the prices were out of line for the quality of food and the atmosphere. This is a diner with restaurant prices. Many of the restaurants that we frequent have more reasonably priced, better tasting food and at least some ambiance. We were disappointed with our food (my chicken was over cooked and... More

Always consistent, good food and service. Great place to go if you have kids. When our niece visits with her large family, we always end up meeting there. Good menu and we have had folks from 82 to 2 with us, something for everyone.

Each and every time we go to Blue Ribbon the food is delicious and the service is the best. The service is very quick and they never rush you to leave. You could stay all day and they would be pleasant.

We come here often and love everything we have had. The service is always with a smile. The food is always plentiful and delicious. We love to have breakfast there. Burgers are great. My husband ordered the Turkey dinner one night and he was floored with the amount of food and it was good!! Try it.

Thank Kim L
