Stopped in for breakfast and it was a real treat. Ordered the country ham with two eggs and hashbrowns. Came with two large fluffy biscuits. All for under $7 and all the coffee that I could drink. Coffee is kinda self serve with the locals brewing new pots as they emptied. Everyone obviously knows each other there but it was... More

Just a down to earth local country place. I had 2 pancakes (should have only ordered one but I ate both) 2 sausage patties and a never ending cup of coffee for $4.85. Food was very good. The locals would get the coffee pot and come by and fill everyone's cup up. Only one waitress, (plus the regulars helping) so... More

It's home cooked and a bit over salted. However if you use my rule, when you go somewhere and aren't sure of the food, order a BLT. If you were part of a group, I'd say order the sandwiches and don't go for the heavy-meal type food served. Another reviewer was correct, this is Buchanan. EVERYONE down there knows everyone....

Cheap cheap cheap but very good comfort food! Can't beat it for the price! Fresh veggies, great loaded burgers, and nice and quiet.

I've only been once, so it's a small sample, but there is a reason I had no desire to go back...Several actually. When I walked in, I could almost feel the silverware drop and the conversation stop. I am a simple, middle-of-the-road guy but it seemed they KNEW I was passing through. It was a "greasy spoon" defined, so I... More

This place is EXTREMELY popular with locals -- except this one. I have friends who want to eat here all the time and they drag me along, whining and pouting. My complaints? The mac and cheese is always over-salted and over-cooked. I don't like mushy macaroni. The grilled chicken is bland, the fried chicken tastes sweet. WTH?! Who sugars fried... More

This is a cash only place with average food. There are not a lot of other options in the area and its frequented by the locals

Great food for the price! You cannot go wrong with the bacon cheeseburger or anything on the breakfast menu. I have never finished a bacon cheeseburger from here.

Hubby and I visited here after the lady at our hotel recommended it. The portions were absolutely enormous and our server was friendly and nice. The food was piping hot and tasted good. You can't ask for more!
