Been 20 years since weve been there. Hope it is at least 20 more before i go back. I had a main dish of vanilla with a side dish of vanilla. Thank goodness for salt shakers.

Basic cafeteria style with good food. Atmosphere is typical cafeteria but the staff was friendly and quite helpful as my wife has an injury that needed some help. Good place.

This is a cafeteria where you pay for each item when you go through the serving line. $4.80 for a slice of roast or chicken. The serving portions are carefully measured out with an ice cream scoop. Side dishes were corn & green right out...More

typical cafeteria, if you like to sit down and relive that type of experience. I had chicken that might have been tasteless, but at least the sausage was hot and tasty, with green beans too.

Real down-home food like mom used to make. Great variety, including beef, chicken, pork & seafood with excellent side-dishes. Standards and daily specialties.

Well it's inexpensive, I'll grant you that much. The food is average at best though - unless you really loved the cafeteria food you were served in high school. If that's the case you may love the place (as many in the area do).

On a roadtrip to AZ we stopped here for lunch on the strength of the reviews. It was like stepping back intime maybe 50 years. Food was very good and very inexpensive. overall experience very positive. We will return if possible!!!!!!

Some menu selections are available everyday; others are available a couple times per week. The menu is available on the Mehlman's website. One caveat--sometimes a special is sold out late in the day.
