Great breakfast buffet! Always fresh fruit and lots of bacon! Hashbrowns with cheese can't be beat. I go there at least twice per month.

The Spot we were headed for breakfast had a very long wait - so - we stopped at the Iron Skillet. I would say that the only thing interesting about the Iron skillet was all of the lovely Wagner and Griswold skillets hanging on the wall. Our breakfast was mediocre at best. The place looked like it could use a... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident because we didn't feel like waiting for a table and they could take us immediately. This place is the classic grandma and grandpa breakfast place, there's a buffet as well as a menu which are both equally delicious. If you like healthy breakfast and modifying your food i wouldn't recommend but if you... More

There was a buffet. I tried to choose wisely since I was a guest of someone and I do not do buffets. The smell in the place is off putting and it needs a good cleaning throughout. I picked foods I like but could not eat most of it because of the rank taste. Old food with a refrigerator taste.... More

We visited Ricks for breakfast on the morning of a Razorback home football game, so they were busier than normal. For $8 a person, we had a generous breakfast that included eggs, potatoes, biscuit and gravy and a meat. Wife had corned beef hash and I had a chicken fried steak. The CFS was a food service item, but tasty... More

Pretty good breakfast bar French toast sticks fair, but extra cost pancakes were excellent and fresh fruit selection was very good as well all in all a bargain for the price.

It was a place to go for breakfast. It was eggs and bacon. The toast wasn't buttered. The service as slow, but friendly. There seemed to be quite a few regulars.
