My Country Fried Steak breakfast was big, filling, tasty, and cheap. Under $10 with coffee before tip. Service was great, I tipped well.

You've been warned. My parents took me to this place and said the tenderloins are huge. Well, I know me, and I love food. Yeah, well, I wasn't prepared. I managed to eat just half of the sandwich, but it was good. So was the root beer! The service was good and our waitress was pretty much on top of... More

A crowded parking lot for a local restaurant is almost always a good sign. However, today the crowd might have something to do with only one cook and one waitress. 40 minutes for a simple breakfast is just plain unacceptable. Our breakfast was good, but the hash browns were swimming in grease. Probably won't be back just because there are... More

My wife and I are both big people and we shared a Hub Cap Tenderloin and both left full. It was just under $9 and came with fries and it was pretty good food. The employees are very nice and get your food to you quickly. I also got some very cute salt and pepper shakers there for $5 made... More

Great food in a fun 50's style atmosphere. Typical diner food, great tenderloins, good burgers, appetizers, etc. For dessert try their pies, they're the best (straight from Gray's Cafeteria). Good prices and wait staff is typically very friendly.
