    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The atmosphere of this restaurant is great, it makes you feel right at home. Everyone knows each other in here, the waitresses know their regulars by their first names, and everyone is friendly. The food is homestyle and really great!

    Favorite Dish: The Breaded Tenderloin is HUGE, the hamburgers are juicy, the potato wedges (or maybe their called spicy fries, I don't reemmber) are unusual and delicious, and the pies are amazing!!!!! I've also heard great things about their breakfasts, but I have no desire to be awake early enough to stop before work. :o)
