    Came here for breakfast on a Sunday morning since just about everything else in the area was closed. Had an amazing breakfast at an incredibly low price. Coming from a small town originally, I always love to find the cozy local spots that aren't out to gouge you with their prices, and this is definitely one of those. Would absolutely go back here for breakfast as everything I saw looked amazing. Fast service, tasty food and low prices - everything I'm looking for in a breakfast spot.

    I have being going to the Depot since I was a little kid. They have shut down and burned down, but their food has remained consistently incredible. If you're looking for a great place to eat on Monteagle Mountain, avoid Mountain Goat and head straight to the Depot. You will not be disappointed. Best burger I have ever had, and best catfish I've had in Tennessee.

    Good price big portion

    Nice staff

    It's an older place but it's straight out of the 70s

    Road-tripping with 5 kiddos from the Midwest to Florida and stopped in for breakfast.  Big HIT!  All the plates were nearly licked clean.  Pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs and bacon all devoured and enjoyed.  Sausage biscuit was the $1 special and didn't disappoint!  Great place to stop for a good tuck in.

    If you're looking for a tiny country diner with all the basics, some good fried chicken, and homemade desserts, this one is for you. Super-small, nice service, down home country place. You can tell the locals love it because it was packed by the time we left. There was a little buffet with a salad bar and a selection of 'meat and three' type food including the fried chicken ( which we didn't try but everybody was raving about.) We ordered off the menu, all four of us got cheeseburgers and crinkle fries because that's what we were in the mood for.
