Restaurants that are still around after 60 years speaks for itself. We had vegetable beef soup and steak fried chicken sandwich. The waitress was super friendly and chatted with us almost the whole time we were there. She takes a sincere interest in her customers.

Just basic home style cooking. Service is good. You will leave full. Everyone was friendly. The man who takes your money at the front is always pleasant and greets you with a smile.
