Best Potroast and Drinks are Heavy! – I love this place and I'm definately not a senior. Very mixed crowd and the bartender pours a stiff drink. If you miss good home cooking, this is the place to eat! Kinda back woods/country, but a real mix of people.
Did I come on the wrong days? – Looking at the other reviews, maybe I keep coming here on off days, but all the times I've been here, the food tastes like nursing home fare. Everything on the plate of liver & onions I had recently tasted like it was steamed rather than fried, and the vegetables were an ugly shade of.. of-- well, they weren't green, and turned to mush in the mouth. I notice a lot of seniors tend to eat here, so they probably like food in this style. I'll pass and head down a few more blocks to the Original Hotcake House if it's not crowded.
Food made from scratch! – Everything taste great! Anytime of day, breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Everything on the menu is a good pick. But my favorite has to be the breakfast menu. Because everything is made from scratch. Most recommended are the giant french toast topped with syrup and a side of sausage. The service is friendly and family owned. Returning customers feel right at home up at the counter or in a booth. Don't have to wait to be seated, just sit right down and immediately get a cup of hot coffee!
