    Food was good diner fare. I wish the server wouldn't call me "honey" and "sweetheart," but that comes with the territory I guess.

    Food was pretty good, not as amazing as others think. Pancakes, French toast, eggs and the big shoe were all consumed. No real standout. Staff was awesome!

    Amazing! Great prices, food, quality and quantity. You will more than likely have a small wait no matter what because it's busy. Try the horseshoe!

    Awesome service and the best breakfast I've ever had! The breakfast shoe was absolute perfection. Try the gravy and the cheese sauce with crispy bacon.

    Had a shoe with hashbrowns, bacon, sausage, egg fried medium, gravy, cheese sauce, & a pancake underneath. Best breakfast I've had in Illinois so far...may my arteries forgive me

    The pancakes do not live up to the hype. Tried them multiple times with the same result. They wouldn't even make the top 5 for best pankcakes in Springfield. The menu is over-priced . Will not return.

    Seriously. You can get pancakes anywhere. You must get the horseshoe. It's only available in and closely around Springfield.

    Everything on the menu is delicious but my absolute favorite is the plate-sized chocolate chip pancakes! The owners are there all the time and the service is always great!

    . I laughed in our waitress's face when she said "the pancakes went up his small intestine to his heart and almost died from pancakes." that's not even possible. Aside from stupidity the place rules
