This place is awesome. Yep, you will see a line, but they move tables so fast it shouldn't even be a consideration. The food and service are top notch. It is almost a shame that they have TWO comparable or better competitors (Moline & Bett.). This would be the top choice in any other community. Love that it is close... More

Well prepared food. Service has always been friendly and good. My favorite place for breakfast in the QC. Restaurant is nothing fancy, but it's clean and well run. Has room to accommodate our men's group of nine individuals.

After waiting in line and drooling over all the amazing food food brought out of the kitchen, finally got the healthy choice omelet with mixed greens and pancakes. Everything was amazing! My only complaint would be that the menu did not say there would be onions in the omelet, so be careful to ask for all the ingredients if this... More

If you like breakfast food, this is the place. One of the best places in the QC. Nothing fancy, just good home style food, with nice people.

We had a big group and we're able to get seated right away (we were there around 9am during the week) There were no complaints from anyone about the food or the service, which is a rarity! I had the country fried skillet with the gravy on the side and it was awesome!

New favorite breakfast place. Excellent skillets with the best potatoes! Their cinnamon roll pancakes are a must have!! No syrup or butter needed! Great service and waits can be long, but well worth it!!

Went with the intention of having a late breakfast but changed my mind and ordered the Reuben and fries. It was the best Reuben I've had in the area. Bread was so good and the corned beef was tender. I will definitely go back whenever I'm hungry for another. The fries were good too. I couldn't quite finish the sandwich... More

Great place to have breakfast from 6 am to 3 pm. Love the Mexican burrito though it is spicy, the omelets, and fried eggs. Be aware that the portions are huge. I normally take home half of the omelet and burrito. This place is so busy that there is a wait most days. Weekends are especially busy. On the Friday... More

My whole family loves this place. I am really into the breakfast panini so I haven't been able to try much more. My son loved the biscuits and gravy.
