    This is one of those institutions of the neighborhood. Servers were very friendly and food was ok. But it took 40 minutes to get our food. With no explanation until the food arrived. "Big to-go order and a large party in the back room." Which we could not see from our table. Gravy was thin and so were the grits. Food was only warm. We will be back but it will take another few years or so.

    Food was excellent and service was fast and friendly but something odd happened. We ordered burgers and onion rings, and we had driven twenty miles, one way, to try this particular meal. Our server said, "I'm sorry but we don't serve onion rings on Saturdays. Would you like fries?" I found that sooo peculiar... and arbitrary but I agreed to fries and waited for my food. While eating an excellent burger and very good fries, a couple in the booth behind ours ordered burgers with onion rings. His server (a different server) wrote his order down and walked away. I continued eating, expecting his server back, any minute, to tell him that, as is their practice, he would not be having onion rings with his burger since it was Saturday. Is Saturday a Latin word for 'serve no deep-fried onions'? I kept eating, anticipating his disappointment when he got the bad news, then there she came, as I felt certain she would, carrying a lovely plate with a big burger and a mound of crunchy onion rings. šŸ˜šŸ˜‘šŸ«¤ WTH? Is there a secret password I'm unaware of? I'll go back because the breakfast menu looks yummy but I'll have my eyes on that server. šŸ˜”

    Been going here on and off for years. Always great food. Just last few times had issues with food coming out individually and not all together and family members have had to wait quite awhile for their food. Overall Iā€™d recommend still

    The lunch menu was good, our first visit earlier this week we were excited to try their breakfast but apparently were just late to order. We returned several days later 30 minutes before the menu stated time to end breakfast to find we apparently do not know the secret handshake to actually order as the server looked arbitrarily at the clock and told us that today their menu is merely a suggestion (while delivering breakfast to other tables) and that breakfast ordering ended seconds before she arrived to our table. Then suggested we return this weekend when perhaps they may decide to allow breakfast to be ordered. Will not visit again

    Really enjoyed my homemade potato soup and grilled cheese! The coconut cream pie was also amazing! Very nice folks in there too!! I eat there whenever I go to Oak Ridge! If you haven't eaten there, you should definitely give it a try!!
