    If you come after bar rush two people are not allowed to occupy a 4 person booth, but are allowed to occupy a four person table because "you can fit more in a booth." That "logic" makes my brain hurt.

    Country Fried Steak and Eggs, Add 1 Egg scrambled, English muffin, hash browns extra crispy. If extra hungry add andouille sausage patty, maybe the Carmel Pecan roll...ahhh

    For $10.50, you might expect a hearty, textured corned beed hash with flakes of slow-cooked meat ... But the pancakes are delicious!

    The new manager, Juan, is awesome! He used to be a cook in the back for 7yrs, and was recently promoted to manager. Be nice to him because he's a cool guy.

    Get any kind of sauce on the side otherwise your food will be drowning in it. Tasty stuff! Although, the hash browns are always disappointing.

    There huge waffles are the best! I love the cookie dough waffle, but unfortunately the service isn't all that great so I rarely come here..

    One of my favorite dives to eat and people watch. Try the veggie burger or the blackened catfish sandwich...delicious!

    The food is good and service is awesome but that's a B.S. special. They will NOT honor their three check-in special. Liars.

    No charge when substituting fruit for hash browns. You receive a substantial portion of good fruits (not just a bunch of melon).

    At least at dinner, don't bother with this place - the service is terrible and the food is bland and forgettable.
