The wait staff were very professional. We were seated in a private room and enjoyed home style cooking and numerous coffee refills. Great for breakfast, lunch or a casual dinner. Lots of of nostalgic decor. We enjoyed our family lunch very much.

This is a great find in Meridian with a comfortable atmosphere and friendly service. Breakfast and burgers are solid and tasty and their prices are very reasonable. We pay more for a family of four sometimes at a fast food place! Give it a try!

This place has the best staff, super friendly atmosphere and the most delicious food. We both had omelettes which were delicious, with hashbrowns and great coffee with plenty of refills. Love this place and will be back soon!

Jumped out of bed at the Motel 6 and saw this just round the corner (avoiding the Shari's, we were). Nice open airy restaurant with a great breakfast selection. Great prices and good coffee. Excellent and speedy service. Recommended for road trippers and all.

Great breakfast at a popular hangout for car fans. Local car clubs like to cruise here so there's a good chance to see some very nice ones. Service is prompt, friendly and efficient.
