“Not sure if it is still on the menu, but if not I do believe one can still special order it. It's the Blackened Chicken Alfredo pizza. It's made with Alfredo sauce, chicken, diced tomatoes, and spinach. Definitely worth the trip!”

“15 min drive. 'Old-timey joint with a lunch counter offering American eats, including all-day breakfast favorites.' Our 4 year old and I do daddy/son dates here for breakfast on Saturdays. I love their omelets and our son loves their "scrambled eggs and sausage" :) ”
