Genuine Broaster Chicken
What our customers say...

Stopped here on a bike ride: expanded hours – open until 8pm Fridays, Saturday, and Sunday make this a great stop for cyclists. The broasted chicken rivals Chicken Shack in Detroit- except this is better and made to order! Nicki and Nicki offer the best service and make this place feel like home with free drink refills. The sautéed spinach and mashed potatoes sides were split evenly as we shared an order. Perfect mid bike ride stop! – Aliceanne

Food is fantastic.  The cooks really know how to put the home cooking in the food. And if for some reason it isn’t right, they happily take it back and make it right.  You can see the cooks, you can see what’s going on.  It’s just the way a DINER should be.  The staff does the best job possible, and sometimes they could use an extra hand.  But they all show kindness in the midst of madness, when shown the level of respect they deserve! – Kate

I ordered the Molly’s Benedict thinking I would eat one muffin and force the other in my friend who “wasn’t hungry”.  Think eggs Benedict minus Canadian bacon add real bacon and FRESH delicious tomato and spinach. Ohemgee…this was amazing…and I ate the whole dang thing! The service was fast and friendly…definitely Midwest small town! There were some tables outside but they were full when I was there so we sat inside.  Nothing fancy just old school diner and clean…lots of old photos on the walls to check out. – Karen

Greeted in good time I took some time to look thru the large breakfast menu and moderate amount of good lunch and dinner choices. My freshly brewed iced tea arrived and I decided on a grilled, blackened fish sandwich with a side of potato salad, one of their chalkboard daily specials. Both were freshly prepared, well portioned and delicious. This fish was spiced perfectly, not overpowering like some I have had prepared as such. – Doc

The best home cookin’ in central Ohio! They are known for their broasted chicken which is mouth watering good! I have learned to like a few other things on the menu just as much though. The Molly’s Benedict is the best eggs Benedict you will ever have! They use crispy applewood bacon instead of your typical Canadian bacon and also include spinach, tomato and a generous portion of hollandaise and seasoning. This is definitely worth stopping in for! The fish and soups and deserts are also homemade and delicious! The pistachio cake or the blueberry-lemon pie! MMMm! Staff are some of the friendliest people you’ll meet. – Tasha
