Stopped for lunch on a snowy afternoon. Was very lucky to arrive before the 2 PM close. Had the Turkey bacon burger and the fantail shrimp. Both were excellent and the price was very reasonable. The place was packed but service was friendly and reasonable. A very nice homey atmosphere and I believe the beast value in the area.

For me, quality in a restaurant ( or diner ) consists not only in the good taste of the food served, but in the right selection and freshness of the ingredients, an appealing presentation, provided with courtesy and efficiency by waiters or waitresses of good attitude, together with a pleasant ambience -...

We go to Pinetop every year to play in the snow for my son's birthday. We usually eat here for breakfast on our last day, and it never disappoints. The servings are generous, and the food delicious and is cooked to order. Expect to wait a little, but it's not unreasonable. Friendly serving staff and great tasting home style food... More

Have eaten here several times and loved it each time. Food is exceptional. Not a fancy place very homey. Price is reasonable. Almost always busy but never a long wait to be seated. Don't miss the potato cakes for breakfast. We eat here often.
