If you are in the mood for hard nosed country eatin try... More

Good American fare. Busy all the time. Waitresses fast but overloaded. Separate room for group meals (Lions Club, etc.) A bit noisy but that's because they'Re always full. Good food, low prices. Daily specials.

This is the type of place where you go if you want some good home cooking. The waitress was very attentive and seemed interested in us. Once we ordered our food we received it in very short time. There was so much food on our plates we couldn't finish the food. As for the food it was quite good. My... More

I have been going here for years and the one constant has been great diner food. Some of the wait staff have been there for a decade. Small town atmosphere and friendly folks makes everybody feel at home.

We visited here twice for breakfast during a recent trip. The food was good and had large portions. The home fried potatoes and the sausage gravy were excellent. The place seemed a little outdated. One day, our waitress kept butting in on our conversation that she overheard passing the table. I found it annoying when she interrupted at least 3... More

This is a no frills dinner but we've never had a bad meal. Good home style menu! Great for after church on Sunday. We go anytime we don't feel like cooking but want simple home style meal. The cost is low and the service is always good.

This is a locals only (but you are more than welcome!) place that serves up food just like Grandma made. The wait staff are down home folks that know how to treat people. I got more food than I could (or should) eat, but I ate it anyway, it was so delicious. So, if you order a soda and it... More
