Budget prices but the quality is very good. Big portions and friendly servers. No AMEX card only master card and cash.

Local restaurant with large portions; traditional American home style food; meat loaf was delicious. Easy access from highway and tourist areas.

Kind of a fun place with humorous slogans and sayings posted. The food was a little better than basic diner fare and the prices are reasonable. Our server and the others as well were very nice and friendly. Not a bad place for dinner.
