GLADEWATER, TX (KLTV) - The menu is loaded with classic "home-cooking" items, and the pies looked outstanding, too. When we visited at around 3:30 p.m. in the afternoon, there were still diners inside, enjoying dessert.
Some of the offerings were traditional favorites, like a patty melt, chicken fried steak, and pork chops. There was also a great breakfast menu, with eggs and sausage and bacon.
There are really interesting burgers on the menu, including local favorite, the Sweet Baby Ray, which is a grilled hickory hamburger with bacon. Some of the more unusual choices include a Krispy Kreme burger (two Krispy Kreme doughnuts with egg and bacon) and the deep fried beer batter burger. The Gusher burger contains two juicy beef patties with hot molten cheese layered in between.
If you'd prefer to eat on the lighter side, they offer several salads: Chef, Cobb, Caesar w/grilled chicken, and Southwest chicken salad.
