some things from the past aren"t worth hanging on to. Such as white bread sandwiches and ice burg lettuce. Probably won't go back.

We read the reviews and thought this would be a good place to get off the highway for breakfast. It didn't disappoint us. The food was great and the waitress was very friendly. I'd stop in again for the biscuits n gravy for sure

We stopped here for breakfast and thought the food was great for the price and the atmosphere was great - all fifties booths and pictures. The service was also good.
