We were travelling around this area on our way back to the airport to return home. We wanted somewhere typically American which this place is. We really enjoyed the food and the smiling staff made us welcome. Thank you everyone!

We've been coming here for breakfast for 25 years and it never disappoints! The older gentleman that owns the place talks with us every time and feels like family. Super kid friendly restaurant also. The waffles, eggs, bacon, pancakes, French toast..everything is great.

We had a coupon and decided to have a "sit down" breakfast on our "getaway" day, rather than hitting a fast food joint. The omlettes were fresh and hot, and reasonably priced. The fresh juice was tasty but seemed to be overpriced. The service was...More
