Heard about this place years ago when they were kind enough to donate all their income to the 9-11 First Responders fund just after it happened. We try to go there whenever we are in the area(snowbirds). The food is good with big portions and the prices are reasonable. The staff is great and friendly. We never leave hungry and... More

We have been there twice for breakfast. The food was fine. However, we can get the same meal, just as good for less at other locations. This is not to say their prices are high, they are not but are higher than some others. The restaurant is a little cramped and noisy, but the service is good. We cannot comment... More

Have lived in Brooksville for 11 years and last night was our first time and I was impressed with the menu. Place was busy, had to wait for table. It's a quaint little place with great service and the food was very good. The potato soup was delicious, my husband said he could have eaten a gallon of it! Salad... More

Breakfast was average. Service was great. The place is always busy, so others must see what I'm missing. Typical strip mall joint.

It is unusual that the food was not better than average, but plz don't give up on us. Glad the service was good, though. We do excel at most meals. We are there for 32 years now and we care about each and every visitor. More

It was breakfast for the kids, lunchtime for me. I got the famous cheeseburger loaded. I ended up using a knife and fork to eat it. It was too big to try to hold it and eat. My daughter got the eggs benedict and was very pleased. Overall, we were happy and full for the trip home.

I was wrong on my first review of them.......they DO serve dinner. Thanks to the owner for correcting me. Wife and I had blood work in the AM so were hungry by the time we got here. Both of us had eggs and/or bacon, sausage, toast, grits, etc and we were not disappointed. Service was quick, friendly and coffee was... More

Great menu, just sorry breakfast stops at 11:30, I wanted bacon and eggs. My husband and I both had a great lunch. I had a BLT and this sounds kind of crazy, but it was the best one I ever had. OK service, but I'd go back in a heartbeat. Delicious and as I said great menu and I want... More

This a little, hole-in-the-wall hidden gem! The breakfast is fantastic, the portions are huge, and the staff is friendly.

We opened in 1984 and are PROUDLY celebrating 31 years at this location with the same ownership. We serve great COMFORT food in large portions and many of our menu choices are all inclusive. Our over-stuffed Omelets and breakfast Skillets are huge, and you may share without an extra charge (smaller sizes avail.). Delicous homemade Biscuits and Sausage Gravy. Great Pancakes from a guarded recipe. Best Grits anywhere. Triple Deckers, Philly Cheese Steaks and great French Fries too. Our Potato Salad and Cole Slaw, Meatloaf, Salisbury Steak and Meatballs...All made from scratch. We bread our own Fish for our Fish Fry and serve slow roasted Prime Rib AuJus Thurs.-Sat. We even have a fountain with real hand dipped Ice Cream, Shakes and Malts....And THE BROOLYN EGG CREAM. Pies, homemade Walnut Brownies and huge N.Y. Corn Muffins....Split open and grilled with butter Mmmmm. Our dinner menu includes soup or salad, a generous entree incl. Potato and veg. A beverage and dessert for under $10. We have a senior dinner portion that incl. A beverage for $6.99. Our burgers are fresh,never frozen, certified Angus beef! Our hot dogs are NATHANS FAMOUS. The menu is typical 'DINER" fare and is 5 pages. Whatever your in the mood for, we have it. We also would like to show you why we don't have to advertise. Although we are in a strip mall behind Carrabbas, we have an old railroad car look, complete with a long counter and stools, tables, booths and neon lighting. Come in and try the TRULY best kept secret in the area. Joe & Valerie
