Summary about
Restaurant Review Grandma Max Nebraska Big Springs

Do I feel that the value of the food and service for this truck stop restaurant experience was worth what I paid for it? No
Based on my personal expectations, what grade would I give to this restaurant experience today (A+ is best; F- is worst)? B
Additional comments It would have been nice to have had extra napkins, straws automatically offered with our ice water, and to have been asked if I would have liked cream with my coffee. We both felt as though the items were priced a little high, but obviously, we stayed and ate after seeing the prices on the menu.

The breakfast hot bar was being regularly restocked with fresh items. The bacon was very tasty and not greasy. The fresh pineapple and strawberries were very tasty. The coffee was freshly brewed, not too strong and at the right temperature.

It would have been nice if our server had asked if we found our meals to our liking. We were pleased that our attendant had a name tag. The cashier was friendly.
