I previously had a great breakfast so I tried a quick takeout lunch. My roast turkey and cranberry sandwich and beer battered french fries were also delicious. This a quality restaurant!

Although we live nearby, we almost always forget this place because there are so many other options around. We popped in for brunch on a Saturday and had just missed the cut-off for breakfast. Would have liked breakfast food that day but we decided to roll with the punches and order lunch items instead. Food was prepared quickly, and was... More

This is worse than waffle house! Took over 20 minutes to get eggs and pancake. Juice comes in a plastic to go cup already poured. You have to get your own straw, napkins, and flatware. Pancake was rubbery and served with artificial syrup and whipped spread in little one time use containers. Awful!

Some restaurants for breakfast just stand out in your mind. A healthy eatery in Anchorage. A diner in Edgewood, Maryland. Now William's Gourmet in Durham. I stumbled on this place while working close-by. The french toast with strawberries, blueberries and a light sauce were absolutely delicious. At first I was wary of potato rounds thinking they were going to be... More

My friend and I went for brunch a couple weeks ago. She had a delicious omelet and I had the standard, bacon, fried eggs, hash browns and toast. My eggs were over medium perfectly and the bacon was perfectly cooked and about 5 slices, huge for any restaurant. I didn't particularly care for their hash browns, small ready made circles... More

After an afternoon of watching cross country runners we found ourselves is a strange town and hungry. We passed a sign that said "ear here". There were a few cars in the lot so we turned in. When we walked inside there are tables and booths and the restaurant is very clean. Also there is outdoor seating, which we used.... More

I went on a Friday night around 6 to get a take-out order. The place was empty which was totally new for me as this place is packed during the lunch hour. I decided to get their special - the seafood basket. It had 2 pieces of catfish, 6 shrimp, 6 hushpuppies, a large order of french fries, and coleslaw.... More

You can't go wrong with ANY item on their menu!!!! A lot of choices, service is always excellent, and their red velvet cupcakes will leave you wanting some to take home. I actually did take some home a few times!!!!!!!! LOL #Greedy

Don't let the crowded parking lot turn you away. Service is very fast and you will find a table. The food is so fresh with a great variety for all types of eaters. For what you would pay for greasy burger and fries, you could eat "homemade" cooking.

Sometimes it may be hit or miss but i think it is pretty good overall, relatively affordable and some things you might not find on other menus. Worth a try
