Great food and awesome staff most of the time. However, it is a small store and since they have a smoking section, EVERYBODY has to breathe the smoke (including from the gas station employees next door who stand in the doorway to smoke).

I had a biscuit covered with a country fried steak smothered in gravy topped with hash browns, shredded cheese and two eggs. If that didn't fill me (or kill me) what would??

Good breakfast place but need to eliminate smoking. Hard to eat in an ashtray. Waffles great. Service not bad.

And it is nasty good. I like the patty melt with hash browns covered in chili and cheese. I like to make sure I secure a stomach ache for the following morning. No one will accompany me here, or thereafter for a day or two....More
