I had the meatloaf it was home made. It came with instant mashed potatoes green beans from the can no seasoning and canned soup. The portions are large and price cheap, so if you are just looking for something to fill you up this is the place.

I've been here several times over the years, most recently last week for breakfast. They certainly deserve some positive ratings for their friendly service (and quick too) and their amazing home cooked meals! We always have a great tasting meal no matter what we order and usually have some to take home for lunch the next day!

I've eaten here 4 times, but it's only been for breakfast. The breakfast specials are wonderful and the breakfast sandwiches are delicious. I will try to get here for lunch or dinner soon! The staff is always friendly and Michelle is great server!

If you are looking for a comfortable cozy atmosphere for breakfast, lunch or dinner look no further. Food is great, nice size portions, excellent wait-staff. You won't be disappointed. Rewards club for frequent diners.

This place had customers standing in wait at 5:30 in the afternoon. I never did figure out why. The food was uninspired, very very ordinary. Maybe the prices are low or reasonable for this part of the country.

Great place for good homemade meals with good portions! The soups are always good and you can't go wrong with the breakfast there also. I have never had a bad meal there and I have been going there for about 2 years. Sometimes the waitresses are a little bit slow, hence the 4 stars. The place is almost always busy!... More

If you eat here very often the staff gets to know you and it feels like your eating with family. Enjoy the menu options and have always liked the food. Always take some home for another meal.

This is a step back in time to an old fashioned home town restaurant. Building and atmosphere is retro and charming. Be prepared to eat a lot. The breakfasts are excellent. We all walked away very satisfied and felt it was a good value for the money.
