First of all, order the corn muffins. I HATE cornbread or corn muffins, but these are like little clouds. I don't know how they do it, although I have tried to trick a chef or two into telling me the secret. Sweet, fluffy, light, and best when hot, of course.

The vegetables are good. The chicken tends to be overcooked. The restaurant used to do a family meal. You paid $5 and got as much as you could eat of 3 meats, 10 vegetable dishes, dessert, and iced tea. The year: 1976. It was the first time I had ever tasted Jerusalem artichoke. Now deceased "Mama" Thomas grew it in the garden that is still there when you walk in.

Right in the middle of Mennonite land, you may see a horse and buggy or two on the way in or out.

We met some of my husband's high school friends at this restaurant. It was nice, family style dinner. Food was good.

Wonderful food and great waitresses! Very affordable... try the corn muffin and rice pudding. Simply delicious home-style cooking! Lunch is cafeteria style while breakfast and dinner are served to your table.

This little place as been around for a long time, and the locals are eager to tell you all about it. They have good food and a friendly staff. They make wonderful pies. Don't expect to find a classy place. It's just a simple place with good food.

We were led to believe this was a fancy dress up kind of place. That couldn't be further from the truth. The food was all right but it wasn't the kind of place, if someone said you chose where we go, that would top my list.
