I had the sm biscuits and gravy with the Sandy's hashbrowns. Both VERY GOOD! The ONLY thing I didn't like as much, was the potatos for the hashbrown-I like crispy and shredded. That being a personal preference, not a true knock on them. They were busy, pleasant. Husband had a "regular" hashbrown, which covered the entire plate. Friend had the... More

Seem to be keeping up the great food and friendly service. Is a very good place to meet for informal business meetings. Definitely the best breakfast place in the Silver Valley.

Food is great! Hot, fresh and prompt. The staff is friendly every time I walked in there. A must visit if you find yourself in Kellog.

Especially good if you like a big breakfast. Food is a little better than average but the coffee was too weak for either of us. I ordered the hash browns with onions, cheese and bacon. It was good but very filling. Clyde got the chicken fried steak. The regular was big enough for us to split. Would get an English... More

There are not many places to recommend for eating in Kellogg, except perhaps "Casa De Ora". This place came recommended, so perhaps our expectations were a bit high. Take the short trip to Wallace. This place was a bit high priced for just average food. If you do go here, go for the chicken sandwich.

Passing through town on vacation, we stopped for lunch. I ordered a chicken philly with tater tots. The sandwich was a good size, but there were probably more tater tots than I needed to eat. My husband and I split a large Huckleberry shake. All of the food was great, and the service was good too.

Passing through town at lunchtime and stopped for a great meal. I got the mushroom Swiss burger with tater tots. When the meal was delivered, over half of the basket was tots. Wow! I couldn't finish all of them. We also ordered a Huckleberry milkshake to share. Another Wow! Great meal!

Everything you need/want for a nice, family breakfast. Massive portions, well prepared, and a decent/fairly priced bill at the finish. I knew right from the get-go that I was not finishing my man-hole sized chicken fried steak, and one of my teenagers barely made a dent in his garbage omelet. My CFS was good, not amazing, but it was house-made---and... More

We went here because of the trip advisor rating of #2 restaurant in town. The menu had lots of choices and they serve breakfast all day. I ordered the chicken fried steak with baked potato, corn and roll. The corn was tough and not warm. The potato was not done. The chicken fried steak was thin and tasteless. Our waitress... More

Very traditional old-style diner. Home-style cooking with huge portions. Friendly servers. Breakfast served any time. Portions are huge, so consider the smaller option.
