Skillets is a plain cooking sort of place. We don't go for dinner there so I can't comment on that, but I love the variety of breakfast offerings they have. I chose a Mexican omelette with chorizo sausage and peppers including habanero and topped with guacamole. It was excellent. The hash browns were very good. I love that instead of... More

Good food but disappointed in the biscuits and gravy. The menu picture showed meat chunks but when served no meat. :(

Skillets is a good family restaurant similar to Denny's. Serves all three meals. Great breakfast service but very average in selections and tastes. Knowledgeable in multiple cuisines but not really Mastering any. Good but not great. Good choice for families or business meals. Large facility, nice staff.

I had a breakfast and my wife had liver and unions. Both meals were very good. The service too was good and the food priced right. The atmosphere is a typical well-kept cafe. We would return again if we come back to this town.

The breakfast is good!! Their meat is always really greasy though.. the staff is friendly. The place could be cleaner. It still smells like smoke in there from before.
