Let me tell you, sometimes you just want something good and not part of any food chain. This is your place. You could consider it a gressy spoon diner, but hey some of the best places to eat won't look like it. Affordable and filling, you'll be just fine. As an MSU Alum, I ate regularly.

Among the seven of us, we sampled the omelettes, the fried eggs, and the pancakes with strawberries. No one was disappointed. The portions were generous. The food was... More

This place has survived the test of time. The burger was surprisingly tasty. Service is a little slow.

Breakfast is definitely what they specialize in at Theio's. Three of us ate there today, largely because it is just down the road from Sparrow Hospital. The staff was quite casual. Upon entering, we were greeted with "Just sit anywhere." The server was willing to come back after we took some time to decide, but did not come back during... More

I have only had breakfast here. Not fancy, but the week day egg specials are a great deal, well prepared, and does the job. My son likes their pancakes. our last visit we had so-so service with our orders being all wrong and I think they had hot tea in the coffee pot! All was fixed, however, without any issues... More

This restaurant is close to Michigan State, has Spartan memorabilia in the decor, and seemed the sort of place college students would enjoy. The waitress was friendly and helpful. As she was the only waitress it was fortunate the restaurant was not overcrowded. We were asked for our orders promptly. When asked, the waitress said they do the mushrooms on... More

Went here for lunch on a Saturday with a party of five. Food was slow to reach our table. Restaurant was less than half full. We were attended by a couple servers during our meal. Coffee refills were always available as they came by often. Prices are average. There were no complaints about the food, it was average to just... More
