Our waitress was very nice and attentive. The blueberry waffle was okay. My kids had the breakfast skillet which was huge and they loved it. If you are watching calories don't choose the skillet!

We used to eat here when we lived in Fort Worth and always visit at least once every time we come back. The food, service and friendliness hasn't changed - still the best.
