Trips is old school in the best possible way. The food is good, the prices are cheap and the wait staff are pros. Fast, delicious and reliably good. I've only had breakfast here but it never disappoints. A Classic.

Had to visit this year - just as good as ever. I never mind the inevitable wait - it is well worth it.

We were reading about places to eat breakfast and Trip Advisor rated this one high. We checked it out and it was well worth the wait at the door. Be prepared to wait but be prepared to see why.

We were staying with friends in the area who frequent Trip's and they said it was worth the wait and insisted we have the cheese grits. Yes and yes! It was a busy Sun morning and the hostess said 15 min. wait and right at 15 minutes we were seated. Our waitress served our coffee immediately as we tried to... More

After reading about the restaurant on trip advisor we decided on a lunch. This is a typical diner, busy and many returning patrons. While they do typical diner food, they do it very well.

Ate here previously for breakfast and stopped this time for lunch. Could not have been happier with the food or the service. Never had to ask for anything - it was always there when you needed it. Good homestyle cooked foods. 2 for 2. Can't wait to return.

My girlfriends and I come here every Saturday morning and bear the 10-30 minute wait to eat the best breakfast in town! Its worth every minute of waiting. The only tricky part here is parking, but again, worth it. The food is hot, flavorful, cooked to perfection, and comes out quick. Coffee is diner-style - so good. The staff is... More
