We have been here prior and received absolutely horrible service but after reading newer reviews, decided to give it another go. Bad idea. Upon entering the doors and standing there for at least 5 minutes, we decide maybe we can seat ourselves? Oh no, stopped by a very rude hostess/waitress. She immediately sat us but boldly told us it would... More

Have visited this restaurant many times over the years. It was the go-to place after choir concerts when I was in high school. Don't visit as often as I did then, but the food and service is still good.

Great bacon cheese and avocado omelet. Not a lot of service breakfast option on this side of town. Food is good. The atmosphere is old and junky. Some nice town memorabilia, but otherwise out dated and not in the charming sort of way. If you are in to supporting local business, then it's a decent choice.

There are other restaurants in the area far better. Some of the food items are good. Also there are a few great servers. But the owners are not employee friendly. The restraurant has seen better days with the decor and furniture.

Went their a couple times and neither time were we impressed with the food. Service was good and interior clean. More like a greasy spoon type food. Large portions but not good on the stomach.

It was once a Dennys, then sold to the chief. They are unique in taking Dennys food and making it more bland. They are gluttin free unfriendly, cant even find a corn tortilla in the house

The waffles are light and perfectly fluffy, not overcooked like other places. The batter is nice and tasty. I've had their homemade buscuits and gravy and other breakfast plates. Like the French toast, and their pancakes. It's been a while so I can't remember how good the French toast was. They serve nice sized portions. I've had their dinner plates... More
