TL'S is always great! Love the corned beef crispy. My husband always gets biscuits and gravy. Simple food that always taste great. Great prices and a friendly atmosphere. You can order a huge breakfast or just what you want.

Had the biscuits and gravy good consistency but a little flavorless. Coffee is good. Orange juice is concentrated ( average). All in all the meal was good and the device too, I would eat here again.

We try to go here on every trip. They have good food and friendly wait staff. We ate there for breakfast (great fatback) one morning and dinner one evening and both were delicious.

My family got a couple orders of pancakes and sausage links to go. When we opened the boxex we thought there was a stack of 4-5 pancakes even though we'd only ordered 2. There was only 2 pancakes in each but they were each about 1/2" thick. That's not really my thing but if you love really really thick pancakes... More

Enjoyed pancakes and bacon on the first visit. We went back for eggs the next day. Wife enjoyed the over easy eggs with bacon and I had the Western Omelet. There are not many places offering a good breakfast and the service was very good.

We stopped here during a lazy day break from life. As a Hatteras Island resident, we rarely venture to Manteo for a day. As they serve breakfast all day and I am vegetarian, I was thrilled. My breakfast was great. My husband got the patty melt and it was good, but a little dry. He said the flavor was good... More
