Zero Stars – You'd have to pay me to eat there again. Worst eggs I've ever had the displeasure of eating. Real dingy place, too. A rat trap.
Horrible place. – Worst experience I've ever had in a restaurant. I wanted to take my grandchild for a nice breakfast, but we waited over an hour for just some eggs, bacon and pancakes. The waiter made no apologies and just said they're busy. When it got there it was cold, like it had been sitting out too long. I asked if they would heat it up and he said that'll be a longer wait. I'll never go back there again. So disappointed to be treated that way.
Bad food, worse service – I waited a long time for my food too; well over 30 minutes after placing my order. Wasn't good when I finally got it, either. Not worth the wait at all. The waiter didn't even acknowledge that it took a long time. It's just eggs and bacon; it's not like it's really made to order...why the long wait?
GROSS!! – So dirty and the service could not be slower. The waiter actually tried to make me feel like I was in the wrong for waiting thirty minutes after he said, "Your's is coming right out." It was just toast and eggs, that's doesn't take 45 minutes to make...if that's how long they're cooking it, they are doing it wrong. And the bathroom, GROSS! There's only one sink in the whole place...like a kid's sink in the hallway. I'm surprised the health department hasn't shut them down. It makes Waffle House look five-star.
Memphis "Home Cooking" Dissappointing – Good waitresses. Food overcooked, greasy, bland. Not a very clean environment. Portions at times are scant for "cheap type" home cooked food. Great cornbread. Management not really customer oriented.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Down-home Southern style plates are served for breakfast and lunch where omelets are the specialty.
