The former owner of Ken's had a friendlier place, better food and faster service. We miss Ken! But with that said it is an OK place for breakfast. We go here many Sundays after church. The new owner/manager is very nice.

They have the best breakfast special - just Monday-Friday, till 11am. 3.99 - 2 eggs, bacon, sausage, or ham, American fries, toast, jelly. Always fresh and big portions for the money too. The owner and wait staff are always friendly as well!

Used to go there when Ken owned the place...was always good. The new owner has made some changes to the inside of the place, but the food is still good. I will go back again for sure.
