We were just traveling thru the area and decided to grab us a bite. We was seated immediately and order taken. Our order arrived and we was taken back by the amount of food on the plate.

This was our first visit. There is a wide selection of food and dessert choices. Everyone in the family can surely find something they will enjoy. The dinner specials include a salad, soup and main course - along with a choice of one of two types of desserts. Bread is brought to the table to start - super tasty garlic... More

3rd time here. Better each time. Menu has something for everyone, and it's all done right! You know you are in good restaurant when you want everything you see on tables on the way to be seated! Lunch specials are terrific value. Can you say cake???? I got mine to go.

Huge restaurant with an equally huge menu. Food was adequate, but nothing special. Staff were very busy, but friendly.

Slide in before 9 a.m. as I did recently, and as long as it is after 7, $4.25 gets you 2 eggs, 3 slices of bacon, 2 pieces of toast, and coffee. Hard to find this anymore!

My only complaint & it's not really a problem, but the bacon was a little to fatty for me. Upon entering & leaving they tease... More

In Alabama for work and needed a good breakfast place, well found one. This diner has the best omelet for the price and it is on the table super fast. My coffee cup was never empty and the staff was fast and courteous. Try the biscuits.....they are great.
