My husband and I have gone on a Saturday morning to Tex and Shirley's a few times. They have good pancakes and french toast. The omelets are almost whipped egg, so if you aren't used to that, it can be a little strange. It gets pretty crowded and loud if you are there during peak times, and the chairs aren't... More

Ordered typical diner fare; burger with swiss cheese and bacon and a side of fries. Crinkle cut fries were good not great. Burger patty was very thin poor quality beef. Sad when the ketchup is the best tasting part of the burger. I will say the waiter was very friendly and efficient. There were only diners at about 5 tables.... More

I took a group of 10 here for brunch and the service for such a large table was wonderful. They were friendly while setting up the table, got our order to the table quickly, and everyone's food was nice and hot. The server came by several times to check on us and to refill drinks. The price is great for... More

This tried and true Greensboro establishment remains the same, after all these years. And that's not a bad thing. It is comfortable, cozy and familiar, even if you've never been there. I have been to a lot of pancake restaurants (especially at the coast) and I have to say, this is my favorite. The pancakes are passable, if not the... More

Great place for breakfast. Excellent wait staff, delicious omlettes and waffles, fast service. We love going there several times a month! Had one bad experience several years ago and avoided it for awhile, but I am so happy my husband insisted we give it another try! We see others that we know there all the time which is really nice...
