As far as local cafes go, you really can't get much better than Old Country Cafe. You might not think much about them when you're just passing by, but once you walk through their doors you will be pleasantly surprised at how delightful the employees and atmosphere are. You will absolutely love their food there, such as the hash brown casserole, the burgers, the hot dogs, the fried chicken, and so on and so forth. The provide real, down home comfort food that will never fail to put a big, corny smile on your face. Sure, they don't have five star chefs there, but your mom wasn't a five star chef there. They have something that a lot of five star restaurants lack and that's a whole lot of heart. They rely on recipes and cooking styles that have been passed down for generations so it feels a whole lot less like a professionally prepared meal and a lot more like a meal that you're sitting down with at a family or neighborhood barbeque, and that is absolutely okay with us. There is a certain amount of nostalgia that is invoked every time we walk through the doors at Old Country Cafe that simply can't be replicated. We can not recommend Old Country Cafe any more!
