Today I ordered the breakfast 1 meal and my friend ordered the trucker breakfast that comes with steak. My meal was absolutely delicious. However, the pancakes didn't satisfy my taste buds. My friend mentioned that her steak wasn't seasoned enough when it arrived. The staff...More

Looked forward going to this place for about a year. Wanted a change from our regular establishments "Shortey's Place" and the Cracker Barrel. Food was horrendous and the place wasn't the cleanest by a long shot. Really sad because I was expecting a lot more...More

Great food, large portions, friendley people. What is not to like!!! Very helpful as well. I had left my jacket with my keys in the pocket. They were kind enough to ship them to me in Dayton, Ohio.

Haven't been here since the by-pass went in and we're relly glad we stopped back in. Food was great. Sitting at the counter is an experience watching the meals come together. Good service as well.
