Wanted to give Skipper's another try to see if things improved since last time. Guess what...NO! What a mistake! If you like frozen food that's dumped into a fryer then this is the place for you. Frozen fries that lacked any flavor at all, frozen...More

Stopped in for family breakfast. Service was fast and courteous and the food was done just right. Of course we where the only table. I recommend the Razorback omlet.

Not a pretentious place, just good American food at very reasonable prices. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all great. They kinda specialize in catfish which is very good as are their homestyle burgers.

A small diner located in Mt. View that seems to be a must stop for the locals. Nothing fancy, but the breakfast is old-time country at it's best. Large fluffy pancakes, hash, omelets and more make this a great place to start your day.
