This place needs to close up, their food is worse than awful!
A friend pulled in here last Saturday morning, and having been here before I was reluctant but didn't ask him to keep driving, so we sat and ordered. Food cane quick enough, but it would have been better to have not come at all. My scrambled eggs were burned on the outside and raw in the middle, hash browns looked nice on the surface but turning them over they were raw on the bottom, bacon was burned beyond recognition, and my english muffin had a thick layer of non-butter smeared all over it (didn't even melt). My granddaughter's eggs were supposed to be over easy, they were over raw. Her pancakes were burned and tough, and same bacon as mine, burned. Overall the food was inedible. I picked at it and ate a small bit, and shouldn't have, because I got a belly ache from it within a few minutes, lasting 2+ hours. The waitress never did bring my granddaughter the water refill she asked for, and when she brought the bill I handed her a $20 bill to take with her. She rudely said I can't take that, my hands are full, you'll have to meet me at the register. The ticket was $17+ so I went to the register and dropped the bill and the 20 and walked out, Never Never Again will I walk through the door, this place needs to close up, their food is worse than awful!
This was my last visit here: Service was ok, but the food is awful. Went with friends and ordered one of their breakfast specials, the Chili Verde Omlette for $8.99, plus coffee for $1.85. The egg and cheese on the Omlette was ok, but the Chili Verde was not only flavorless, but also full of gristle and fat... the worst I have ever experienced. I had to pull everything out of the Omlette and just eat the egg and cheese. The hash browns were ok, as was the english muffin. Even though the server poured lots of coffee, it was weak and had a bad taste. I have been here before for breakfast, and I can honestly say this place is consistently bad.
