We visited the restaurant early on a recent Saturday afternoon. Customers filled the eatery and were enjoying various breakfast and lunch entrees and daily specials.
While the restaurant was packed with customers, we didn't have to wait for a table.
After surveying the menu, we decided on traditional Biscuits and Gravy ($5.49) as well as Homemade Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy ($8.39) and the Hot Beef Sandwich with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy ($8.09).
The biscuits and gravy proved to be a satisfying choice as were the lunch options we chose. Aunt Sally's meatloaf, which was a hefty helping, was a flavorful dish. The Hot Beef Sandwich was also a large offering and starred a brown gravy, which also was featured as a gravy on the meatloaf.
