My friend and I enjoyed breakfast for lunch here, omelets with hash browns and biscuits. The biscuits were fresh which is nice at lunch ( not leftovers from breakfast). Service was quick and efficient.

We ate here twice in two days. We had dinner last night with the kids and had a great meal and today we ate alone for breakfast. Both meals were great. If we were going to be here longer, we would have returned.

Service was very good, but the hashbrowns and chicken fried steak tasted like old oil was used. Not much flavor. Won't be back.

I’ve only been twice. First time was for breakfast and my husband nor I was impressed. We were talked into going a second time for dinner and really enjoyed it.

Very reliable for standard diner fare. Chicken fried steak stays crunchy, even with gravy. Good service.

This is the quintessential small town country café. Breakfast is good. Chicken fried steaks and chicken fried chicken smothered with cream gravy and sides is standard. Homemade pies are local favorite.

Breakfast here is very good. Lunch and dinner meals are also very good and home cooking style. I’ve gone here many times and it’s always good to excellent. I would rate this the best place in Wylie to eat. Prices are very reasonable.
