We beat the pre-game breakfast crowd and were able to immediately get a table. Portions were generous and arrived really quickly. Servers were very personable and accommodating. Nothing fancy, just good home style food, which suits us perfectly.

In town for a football game and was looking for a great breakfast...This is the place! Their #2 chicken fried steak scramble with sausage gravy is excellent! Service is excellent and prices are fair.

I love this place. It's just good home cooking with amazing pies! I should have taken a picture of their pie menu. There must have been 25 kinds of pies, all homemade.

I've never had a bad meal here yet. Breakfast is good, the chili is good. My sister is partial to the French Dip Sandwich. Everyone in our party always enjoys their food.

My sister lives in Lincoln and seems to love this place. I find it too "everyday". The food is not spectacular but it's decent food. The prices are reasonable. The pie is usually pretty good - we got ours to go.
