Stopped here for a quick breakfast and were not disappointed. Fast and friendly service while reasonably priced. Small little place located right off of the interstate just south of Springfield. Next time our journeys take us by here we will stop in again

Interior and exterior look rather run down. Very small and literally no guests but it was close to the hotel and we were hungry after traveling all day. Typical diner menu except but somewhat limited. Not at all impressed with the meal and I only...More

Quick stop for breakfast on our way to the fairgrounds A little rough around the edges. That's not necessarily a bad thing in this case, just typical of an eatery that isn't frequented as much as the big names. Our food came very fast. Waitress...More

Dropped in for a quick breakfast after a night at Motel 6 next door. Friendly greeting. A bit rough around the edges but homey and welcoming. Eggs were fresh but hash browns, sausage, biscuits and gravy are standard restaurant supply. Coffee was good and we...More
