My daughter works there and has been there awhile. I've always had great experiences when we go there. Everyone is so nice and they know most everyone by name.

the people might be nice but the food sucks. wish they would turn that place into a dairy queen or something worthwhile. they have the highest visibility of any other rest. at the 417 exit and its the worst place in the world for food. Oh and not to mention you would have to wait for the sheriffs department to clear out before you could be seated. Are there apartments or something inside or underneath perkins rest.? i was just wondering if all of the sheriffs deputies rent spaces there or what.

I like the food and I especially like the 1/2 priced appetizers at night (after 10). Can't beat it and the people are nice and the place is clean. I went to Shoneys and i thought pretty much all of the food was yuk.

I just dont understand why you people are so critical of these men and women that are out here protecting us and our families. So what if they go to Perkins to eat. Are they not supposed to eat? They probably get some kind of discount ( which they deserve) and thats why they eat there so much. They are human. Sounds like you just have a bad taste in your mouth from dealing with the cops. Im guessing youve been arrested. But I guarantee you that if someone breaks into your house or threatens your family, youll be the first to call them for help.

I agree, the chow in the military was better than Shoneys.

I have always liked perkins, but, it is hit or miss. Depends on who is cooking. Sometimes it is good, sometimes it is just nasty. I would say it is a risk to hold a party or gathering there.

First of all whats the problem with the officers and deputies eating there? The reason they all eat there is they have arrested the criminals that work at every other food joint in this county and want to go somewhere to eat where idiots like you wont spit in their food. There is not a thing wrong with them eating as a shift together. i bet when your flipping burgers at McDonalds you eat with a couple of your friends. So lay off the fine officers and deputies in this county. They are human and need a place to take a break and relax like everyone eles too. Ive been there when they just got their food and have to go running out to deal with a drunk, wife beater or dope addict leaving their meal sitting on the table. You should show these people some respect because when everyone eles is running away from danger they are running in. GROW UP!!!!!!!

Actually, Perkins also gives a real nice discount to Officers. It's nice to know that your respected.

In response to "aka", you should be ashamed of yourself. Carol and Sarah are two very sweet ladies. I worked for Carol at TR truck plaza for a long time and she treated me better than any of the other managers and owners combined. She NEVER told me to serve bad food or do anything like that and I never witnessed her telling anyone else to do that either. She was very strict and didnt allow any nonsense from her employees. She was and is still a very sweet lady.

If you want to support Carol it would be smart not to mention TR Truck Stop. The food was good at TR but it was a den of criminals. I believe the owner has a long criminal record and didn't pay his employees that well.
