Over easy eggs were perfect. Real potatoes grill fried with onions to die for! Rye toast. Good coffee with big, free to go cup ( just ask). Pork tenderloin with just a hint of garlic salt. I like buckwheat cakes with more "whang," but most folks probably like these. Price is higher that fast food but fair for quality and... More

We went for dinner and were greeted by a not so pleasant hostess. The sign indicated we were to wait to be seated, but the hostess shouted across the counter at us. She needs a little schooling in how to greet customers, and you do not tell them you "don't care where you sit." I had the barbecue platter, and... More

Totally beats the chain restaurants if you love to go out for breakfast! Attentive service, hot and crispy bacon (sometimes hard to find!). Hubby and I went early, and we were delighted. Felt like a homey diner. We loved it!

The sign outside says "best breakfast in the valley". This is surely the case. We stopped by on an early Saturday morning enroute to Lexington, VA. This is a classic diner with awesome food, great and friendly service, cool interior and basically everything you can wish for.

We enjoyed Kathy's and could tell it was a local favorite. Decent prices and good portions. No real low points, but not really any high points either. Friendly people all around!

I go to Kathy's several times a month when the wife wants to sleep late and I'm too lazy to cook breakfast. The food is good, reasonably priced and the service is very good.

I went to Kathy's on the recommendation of a friend. I ordered the country ham & eggs. Better half ordered 1 egg, bacon, biscuits. Her meal was as expected. My country ham was as tuff and dried out as shoe leather! $25.00 breakfast! I should have eaten the stale donuts at the motel and save the money for a nice... More

We recently had breakfast at Kathy's (in the afternoon). The server asks how you would like your bacon, how you would like your scrambled eggs, etc. Good service and our food was delicious.

This place was your typical diner. The food was good and prices weren't bad. Not the best, but better than eating at a chain restaurant!

Stopped by for a late breakfast. Sign said "best breakfast in the valley". Not! Biscuits were burnt, the sausage Gravy was "wallpaper paste, coffee was awful. Service was good. Wouldn't do again
