Four of us ordered the two egg breakfast, we all ordered our eggs cooked different. We each ordered bacon. Two of us had grits in place of hash browns. Two of us ordered biscuits. When the food arrived all orders were correct and the waitress knew exactly who order what. The eggs were all perfectly cooked. Everything was fantastic. Great... More

I visited this restaurant 2016 new years eave morning for breakfast. The service was slow and the food was cold when served. Also the sausage patties I ordered were so overcooked they were close to being leather.

One visit will have very good home style food, the next may be poorly prepared at best. The salad bar tends to be a wilted joke. The breakfast menu is the best if you are unsure. It's a classic diner, nothing fancy, but the prices are goof.

Good little country diner where all the locals hang out every morning. Big lunch crowd, too. Scrumptious pancakes. Great BLT and lunch specials. Wait staff very helpful.

If you Love the spice of cigarette stench with your crappy food..this is the place for you. Salad bar is full of rancid old food..people sitting in booths and tables smoking with their kids next to them..just overall horrible. Save yourself some money..and get a better meal from the frozen tv dinners at Walmart!

Stopped in for breakfast on our way home from Houston. Busy place but quick, friendly service. Good food, reasonable prices. Homey atmosphere. Seems to be where the locals choose to do breakfast.

This place was just awful. We were there for breakfast based on good reviews. I ordered corned beef has and it was served cold. The gravy that came with my husband's breakfast tasted like they added flour to the dishwater. It is a real shame when people don't care enough to serve a reasonably good meal. You would almost have... More

Went for breakfast and ordered things like pancakes, waffles, omelets, etc.. It took forever for our food to arrive. When we finally got our good, most of it was cold. The kids didn't mind since they were so hungry. My omelet and my niece's eggs had little bits of shell in them. Hash browns were very cold and bland. Overall,... More
