We stopped for lunch on a long drive and enjoyed their soup/salad buffet. Good selection and reasonable price. They also had full buffet with several meat and side selections. A bit short staffed, but friendly service.

As a truck driver I've been to a lot of truck stops and ate at many buffets. I must say that this one is by far the worst I have ever been to. The nostalgic environment is very inviting(the only reason I gave one star,...More
