Two of my family members have large appetites, one ordered the special- meatloaf (looked to be about 3/4 lb) which came with 2 sides... More

Off the main highway but worth the side trip! Good selection! Only open for breakfast and lunch but much better than your typical off the main highway places! If traveling on highway 69 take Main Street (business 69) approx 4 miles east. Worth the detour!
