I stopped for a late breakfsst and decided to try their biscuits and gravy...I'm hard to please when it comes to sausage gravy. Theirs is great!!! The biscuit was light. Prices very reasonable.

This place is charming, the staff is really good and attentive, all food is made to order and well worth the short wait. It's only 3 miles off the interstate! We will definitely go back !

This is hands down the best food around. The Mediterranean pasta is out of this world and a great find for a little place like this. The service is always great and the food is ALWAYS great!

The food is very tasty, the service is good, and the atmosphere is typical of a small town restaurant - clean but nothing fancy. Their burgers are terrific and fries are home cut and not too greasy.
