In for the first time mid-month on a Saturday. The stockyard was open so there were probably 10 people already seated at the counter with Betty plus 3 other ladies waiting on people.
We sat down, every server made eye contact w us, but ignored us. Several minutes later our server walked up w her pad in her hand and asked what we wanted....I replied "a menu?"
We ordered, got our food, and it was good. Not the best biscuits and gravy I've ever had, but good. (The bacon was really good)
When we were ready to go our server cashed us out, with the entire visit not meriting 5 words from her. In another state I wouldn't even have been surprised, but in my home state of TN I expect people to be friendly. I mean really, sometimes we are even TOO friendly.
I guess they do enough business that they don't think they need to be kind to first-time guests? I won't be back.

Hands down some of the best sausage in the south! This stockyard cafe demands respect! You can find all the breakfast classics made the COUNTRY way! Don't forget the strawberry preserves!

What a great place! Small & cozy, no frills but we liked it so much we went 2 days in a row for breakfast. Betty is awesome, server Ava was great & the local folks sitting around the horseshoe shaped counter are super friendly. Your typical hole in the wall diner but worth the trip!!
