"There’s nothing here fancy at all," said owner Deborah Painter. "It’s home-cooked. I just wanted to have a place for the locals to come.”

And boy are they coming in here. Some stop by twice a day to get some food.

"You better be hungry when you come here because they’re going to give you plenty to eat, I promise you that,” said Gregg Stump.

The portion sizes are huge, but it is all good. If you're in for breakfast, make sure to try any of their omelettes -- you won't be disappointed.

For lunch and dinner, its the hamburger steaks and burgers that have people talking.

"I’m telling you what, this burger alone will have you coming back for more,” said WDBJ7's Josh Birch.
