Wings were small, food took a long time, but it wasn't that busy either. The soup and salad were average. They offered pie to compensate.

Attempted to eat here after visiting the caverns and could not get a seat due to the restaurant being extremely short staffed. Could not give us a wait time and basically ignored us when we walked in and told them 8 ppl. So we went to Gennaro's down the street and quit glad we did.

Was just a small building we took a chance that since the parking lot was full it was good. Walked in wow, decor was very very nice, food was hot, prepared well and a lot. We all had ribs, cat fish, brisket and pork. All were hot, well portion and we will be back

Found this place on Google Maps when traveling to Luray. So pleased with the food. Hot turkey sandwiches and mashed potatoes were great. We had their fried green tomatoes which were delicious. Good food Good prices.

This is a downtown diner that is clearly popular with the locals. We have a super breakfast. The bacon and coffee were particularly good.

Thank Revladyu
