Fast and friendly service with decorations to view to remind you of the past. We asked a man leaving if the food was good, he stated he has eaten there daily for years and it is the... More

Stopped in twice coming back from vacations. Fried chicken and soups are really good and the price is great! Worth a stop in. The place was packed at 5 on a weeknight. Lots of locals. Hidden gem I believe.

Hubby and I wanted some home-cooked supper before we got to the traffic of St. Louie on our Northwest trip, and we found this little spot on Trip Advisor right off the interstate. We are both pleased as punch ... food was excellent. I ordered a chef's salad, and what a surprise: Most places fix a bowl of lettuce/greens and... More

Nothing over the top special, just good food, and friendly service. Never had anything bad from here, but the chicken is always great.

After eating their meatloaf, beets, and slaw - I seriously thought my Grandma must have been in the kitchen! It was delicious! Good stop after leaving St. Louis!

Found this gem while heading home from vacation, was a close jaunt from I-57. Group of 8 had excellent fast service and amazing food, no matter what's ordered. You have to leave room for some homemade pie and ice cream at the end. One of the best stops on our trip!

Food is awesome, prices are very reasonable. Great little mom & pop joint. Not far off 64 . We'll be back when we head back Evergerds fort. Pulled pork is fantastic!

I highly recommend this. We always have great service. The food lives up to their slogan of, "Food so good, you'll think we stole your Grandma". The price is excellent for the portions. Have taken friends there from out of town, and they are always amazed with the food/service/price. Several have stopped back on their own.
