I read the reviews online prior to visiting Deer-Head head Cafe, so I had an idea what I was in for. It is exactly how everyone states it is, the inside decor and outside decor are absolutely disgusting, but the food isn't so bad... I...More

It's old. It's small. It's got almost no sense of decor inside. But it's a great place to eat with a charming, old-school diner feel. Enjoy!!

I have driven by this place for years and finally tried it. First impression was the front door, kicked in a few times I think. There were several people inside so it was looking up. The service is very good. Ordered eggs and sausage and...More
