This is a great, unassuming little spot to stop while on the road, with easy access from the interstate, but serving lots of locals. We had excellent fried catfish, which was nicely cornmeal-breaded, and the grilled ham and cheese, which, while simple, probably tops anything your mom made for you. They offer the full bacon, eggs and pancakes menu as well as burgers, hot dogs, shrimp, chicken sandwich, Philly, and chili. Great prices too.
N.B., They close after lunch, and whether it's a pro or a con for you, they have a smoking section.

Casual atmosphere. Truck drivers eat here a lot along with regulars. Good basic home style meals. Love their omelets! Prices good too.

I am not sure why it is named "50's Cafe" being that there is next to no decor on the walls, but the food was good. Jeremy was our server and he did great. Two adults and three kids ate BIG breakfasts for less than $20 total. Food is your typical breakfast and lunch foods. Nothing fancy, but prepared well. Friendly staff too. We will be back.

Cozy diner atmosphere. Frequented by locals. Omelette was full of ingredients and all our food was cooked perfectly. Coffee was quite good. Friendly and attentive service.

We found this place during a detour, and it was well worth the detour. The food is very good, and the service was very fast. The menu offered variety. I really liked my catfish sandwich. And this place offers cheap eats!
