Had breakfast recently, food came promptly and hot. It's run of the mill, nothing special, but satisfying. Restaurant is a little 'shop worn' but clean, not fancy at all. But if all you want is a decent meal at a moderate price it does the job.

We've ate here twice already this month. They have daily specials and a breakfast buffet. The fish taco lunch special on Tuesdays is excellent. The tacos are served with refried beans in an eatable cheese bowl. We will definitely be back for this treat again. We had the breakfast buffet after church and everything was great. It's not a huge... More

Had breakfast on a Sunday morning. Portions were hearty - 3 pancakes are beyond normal human capacity to finish. I had french toast and it was just right. Sausage patties were spicy and good. Real scrambled eggs - not from a carton. Lots of local and local character.

We dine here for breakfast about once a month. The portions are large and very tasty! Weekends are usually crowded and there's a buffet on the weekends, too.

This is actually one of my favorite down home, Mom and Pop type places. I'll be honest, I've never ate anything off the menu. We come here on weekends when we are down at the Lake, either on a Saturday after going to the Farmers Market or Sunday for breakfast. They have a delicious little buffet for the very reasonable...

The food is consistently good, and the servers are very attentive and friendly. There is always plenty of food, but if you have an extra large appetite, I recommend the side buster. Our teenage son couldn't even finish a whole one! I've yet to have to ask for a refill of coffee... Down home cooking at it's finest.

We love going to the Chuckwagon. I always end up getting the Sidebuster a unique breakfast burrito of fun. Husband gets an omelet with all of the fixings. Teen daughter gets the Taco Salad that she just loves. We love being able to get breakfast at any time. Its nice to be greeted by the local staff that remembers us.... More
