Stopped by before leaving town. Wow!!! The food was great and the service was excellent. Ordered a skilled breakfast and it was delicious! It was enough for 3 meals. If ever I am back in town, I will definitely visit again.

Excellent food and a lot of it. Try the cinnamon roll pancakes. Be prepared to wait a little bit, but well worth it.
