Tucker's Veggie Scramble

I enjoyed the Tucker's Veggie Scramble - plenty of food but not too much. The fruit side was cut melon that seemed really fresh. I opted for the biscuit and it was fluffy and decadently yummy! Service was also great.

Bear's Special

One of the best breakfasts I've ever eaten! Everything was delicious and well prepared. So much flavor with all the meat and veggies. And the homemade biscuit was perfect. Great service too. Will definitely eat here again when in the area.

The food in the ambiance is always great! I'm getting a gift card for my dad for Father's Day.

Great Bacon. Always extra tasty and Lean. Not the thin slice most places serve. The help is always willing to give extra attention to any all my requests.

Joe's Special

With hot sauce the scrambled egg mix was great! Hashbrowns were as expected, nice crunch. I also got a cinnamon roll which was great, if a little heavy.
