Food like mama used to make. Stopped after church, before cranking up the motorhome to head home. The food was great with fast, friendly service. The place was packed for good reason. This is possibly the friendliest place we stopped at on this trip.

We stopped at the Squeeze-In for breakfast after spending the night at one of the hotels across the street. The food was really good once we got it. The restaurant was really busy and the wait staff was overwhelmed. They apologized profusely for the inconvenience.

Diane was our waitress and she was so friendly and helpful. We weren't sure at first when we walked in but we had a dog and 3 hungry kids so we went for it. We sat outside on the patio and she made sure we...More

For lunch a BLT sandwich was fine. Santa Fe salad was disappointing. For breakfast food was stand fare with good eggs and bacon. Basic food, basic service with nice people.
