This place is AWESOME! It's what I would consider a local dive! They have a big menus but specialize in sausage sandwiches. The line may seem long at first but it goes FAST! Great service! Don't forget your cash- it's worth it!

we tried to stop here before but they are closed on Sundays. Well we traveled on Friday and stopped for sausage sandwiches and they were great. They forgot to put eggs on our sandwiches but no complaints because the sausage, peppers and onions were a hit. This place is busy, park carefully, anticipate a line, be patient, and enjoy!

I usually stop in about twice a month. The sausage is perfect. The line gets really long but always moves fast. Very reasonably priced

Stopped at this small roadside joint after seeing how many vehicles were stopped there. Not a bad place to eat, basic stick to your ribs fare. The Elvis memorabilia was pretty cool.

It's a joint...that people line up around the business...it's that good. Can't believe it took me so long to eat there. We had the 1 on 1 (one sausage link...hugh with 1 egg). A staple in this community.

My 2 son-in-laws, grandson, and I ALWAYS make this a stop on our way to the Lewes Polar Bear Plunge annually! Place opens at 4am and closes by 11am. Crowds vary depending on time. We usually get there between 9am and 10:30am and have walked right in with no wait sometimes or had to wait for 30 minutes or more... More

Helens is the best! When we have the time to drive down state to make it to helens for breakfast we do. The sausage of course is amazing but everything they offer really is great. Expect a line out the door if you go on a Saturday !

Thank Monica D
