I stopped here because of other reviews and the parking lot was busy, so the locals must like it. The seedy look of the place nearly turned me around though. This place is dirty. The windows haven't been washed in a decade. There's thick dust...More

They were very friendly and the food was delicious. I had the country-fried steak which was good although not as good as one I had back Wisconsin, which I am admittedly spoiled by. I especially liked the fried apples available as a side. The restaurant...More

Waitress was wonderful, polite and friendly. Food was standard diner fare. Nice portion and price. If in the area, will definitely revisit.

Stopped for lunch. Big mistake. Had eaten here a year ago for dinner. Ordered a cheese omelette. It was terrible. Overcooked and dry. It is a diner that has not been maintained. Not real clean. Service was SLOW. Won't return.

We were looking for an alternative to fast food or hotel buffet breakfast. The place seems to have a large regular crowd based on overheard conversations. I had eggs, country ham, biscuits and grits. Everything except the eggs was tasty. My wife had the pancakes...More
