Had lunch here, the food is ok but not inspiring. Meat loaf not bad, good portion. Mashed potatoes a little weird tasting. Green beans fine, pintoes not. Wife couldn't eat those. Owner comped it, nice touch. People are nice, prices are fair, the place is dated but clean, the food is ok but in no hurry for a repeat visit.

Thank Bud G

The food was okay but nothing special. It all sort of tasted the same to me. Decent salad bar. Moderately priced. Very friendly staff. It was an okay place to go on a Monday evening when most of the other local restaurants were closed, but I wouldn't be eager to go again.

Passing through the area and thought we would stop for a quick breakfast. We found ourselves the only people in the restaurant under 60. Had omelets that were raw in the middle, biscuits that were well overcooked and gravy from a can. Will not be going back.

Not gourmet, atmosphere not anything to speak about, but this restaurant serves good food at a reasonable price in a friendly atmosphere. Good breakfast spot along 220. Have never gotten a bad meal or bad service here.

Excellent place. I always try coleslaw on my first trip to a new place because you won't get good coleslaw at a bad restaurant. The coleslaw was good but what I liked best was I wanted a BLT and I ask the waitress if the tomatoes were home grown. She ask this other lady there and she said I can go get one. Turns out it was the owner and she went out to their garden and picked one. Try getting service like that at ANY chain place that is why try as they might chains will never close all the Mom & Pop places. I left a $6.75 tip for a 17.dollar bill. When you are in Wirtz or Rocky Mount VA. pay them a visit you won't be disappointed. Not fancy just good. Norma Forney agreed and said you won't get a burger like this at a chain place.

Gonna try liver and onions next time.
