Wonderful fried shrimp. It's rare when both the tartar and red sauce are fantastic. Salad bar is fantastic. Good service. We came back and tried it again. Just delicious.

For one of the best breakfasts in town, check out JJs and their chickenfried steak breakfast. It is a tasty CFS just the right size for breakfast, with eggs, hashbrowns, and toast. I recommend getting the rye toast and don't pass up on their homemade salsa. For an added bonus they have some outdoor seating on a covered patio so... More

My wife and I had breakfast here while vacationing in this area. I ordered the Gary's Omelet w/Sausage, Mushrooms, & Swiss cheese and Hash Browns. Very good omelet & hash browns were crispy, all good. My wife ordered 2 eggs over medium with sausage, hash browns and 2 pancakes. A lot of food for a little lady to eat. The... More

Based on the positive reviews, we decided to eat here - and that was a very good decision! The restaurant is a little hole in the wall place, but don't let that hinder you. Our... More

Mostly American comfort food: Chicken fried steak, meatloaf, chopped steak, burgers, salad bar, and breakfast. Open 7am-3pm. We arrived at 10:45 on a Tuesday and the restaurant as already at about 80% of capacity. Seating is available both inside and outside. A waitress told us to seat ourselves. They serve breakfast until 11:00. Some people were eating breakfast, some lunch.... More

Loved this place. Convenient to most hotels. Breakfast was fast, cheap and tasted great! Servers were uniformly friendly and genuinely seemed happy to be there early in the morning. Only downside was the parking. If you have a larger truck, backing out on to 35 can be tricky. Best to park across 35 at the church lot or across Oak... More
