Stopped for a quick lunch and had a salad and sandwich. Fresh vegetable and prepared quickly. The server was very attentive. Will be back when in the area.

A wonderful find! Stopped at a hotel nearby, and thought this was worth a try. I have to say, honestly, that 9 out of 10 breakfast meals on the road are disappointing. Not sure why, breakfast is a no-brainer, but either the eggs are cooked incorrectly, or the potatoes are off, the toast isn't toasted......you get the picture. Everything about... More

When we arrived at 10:30AM there were empty booths but all dirty - tables were not being bused. Staff was slow to take our order as well as other folks and our sever apologized at the end for being slow and... More

Ever since we discover this diner, we've eaten there several times. We seek it out when we have the opportunity, actually. When we go to Massanutten in McGayhesville. On way down 81 to NC or TN. Have never been disappointed with anything have tried on the menu. Steak salad boasts a nice piece of sirloin. Love it. My husband's love... More

A lot of variety on the menu. A trucker's stop also, which means good food. I choose fish and it was very good.

My husband and I stopped here while traveling on the interstate-- I read about it on TripAdvisor. The diner is located next to a truck stop and very easy to find. It was very clean and almost full when we were there for lunch. I had the meatloaf which was delicious and my husband loved the open faced roast beef... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch while traveling North on I 81 and we were very pleased with the sandwiches that we ordered. My wife got the club sandwich and I got the Reuben, both came with chips. The restaurant is part of a truck stop and was very clean with fast service. Our waitress was very nice and checked... More

Good stuff: lots of meat on the menu Lacking: Fruit plate Pricing: Big bang for your buck! Restaurant is vintage themed and neon lit... Would be cool to see it carried to the exterior.
