A basic restaurant with appropriate quality for the price. I wouldn't say this is very good but certainly hits the spot if you need a good, quick bite. Service was good.

I went there with a group and most people had the breakfast buffet, but I had slices of pie and milk. I super enjoyed my breakfast! This restaurant used to be much smaller years ago but has expanded and it looks nice. Service was good.
