All I can say is, pooey. If you like soup straight out of they Sysco can, go for it. At least that's what it tasted like and looked like. They serve your typical "truck stop" type food. There is nothing remotely interesting or extraordinary about this place. It is cheap though if that's what matters to you.

Very nice waitress, but she dribbled coffee across the table and never wiped it up. With us only having one thin napkin each, we just left it until we were done. Asked for hot sauce and it never arrived. The food was excellent. I had sausage brisket with egg and cheese. Great brisket! Hubby had eggs, hash browns, Bacon etc.... More

We were thrilled to find an inexpensive, family-oriented restaurant less than 5 miles from our house when we moved to Mills River in 2009. It's got ample parking, plenty of open dining space, an extensive menu, gorgeous photographs of local scenery on every wall, and we've never been there when the wait staff wasn't extremely friendly. This should be our... More

We stopped here for a break and some food. Excellent value for money... soup, entrée, salad and dessert for $12. This is not the Ritz but you get good food at a great price served by attentive staff. Could I find fault? Sure, there are things I might have improved on, but overall this is a fine place to eat.

I have been going by this restaurant for year and have always wanted to try it. I wish I have tried it sooner. My mom and I wanted a nice place to eat after stopping at the stores in Mills River. I had the Buffalo Hamburger and my mom had the Lamb Shank. We both got to salad bar which... More

We didn't have high expectations, judging from the exterior. But to our delight, everything was delicious. And so many desserts! Make sure you leave room!

Friendly service, clean place, lots of choices. I had baked lasagna -- it was good. I had the salad bar and it was okay -- especially since few places (diner types) offer a salad bar.
