It's an American diner, very popular with the rural community and plenty roomy to accommodate lots of patrons. I've been to Busy Corner five or six times. Here are the pluses: * Great coffee and absolutely, unequivocally INCREDIBLE pies * Breakfast served all day * Good value for your money * Always very clean dining room and bathrooms * Convenient location right off I-74 * Plenty of parking, including large vehicles * Consistently friendly and attentive waitstaff Of all the times I have been to Busy Corner, it's typically been for breakfast. Good food at a good price. Great biscuits and gravy, delicious French toast, and it's hard to complain about eggs or bacon anywhere. Tonight I ordered off the dinner menu for the first time. I ordered the bacon-wrapped, charbroiled pork tenderloin with baked potato and coleslaw. The slaw came out first and was tasty if a little wetter than I'd prefer. Not vinegary slaw, but mayo/salad dressing based. It lacked something, and now after some reflection it strikes me that what it was missing was celery seed. That would have been a great improvement. However, it was obviously homemade. The pork was a disappointment. I prefer a moist, closer to medium pork loin, but this one was very well done, and as a result very dry. I had to request Heinz 57 in order to eat it. There was also a skewer going through the meat that probably should have been removed before I cut into it with my knife. Not even the smallest bit of it had been protruding from the surface, so I had no idea it was even there. The potato was not hot and I suspect had been cooked much earlier in the day. The butter barely even melted. In the interest of full disclosure, I did not complain to the server, and she may well have made it right given the chance. I was part of a large bus group of nearly 50 people and didn't want to hold up the group waiting for another dish. Also, as we were a sizable group, the kitchen may very well have been slightly overwhelmed. To their credit, they did a fantastic job of coordinating the timing of everyone's dishes, and I heard nothing but good feedback from the others in my party.
Has the best apple pie I've ever eaten. That's no exaggeration either. You must try the pie when you go there that in itself is worth it.
There was three of us eating and our food came out quickly and everything was cooked to order and was very good for as busy as it was in there. Service was great with plenty of refills given. I ordered the liver and onions dinner which was flavorful and very tender and for sides i got american fries crisp and cole slaw. I do think that the slaw could be slightly sweeter but it was very crunchy and fresh. My mom got a patty melt and fries with slaw and my friend got the hot beef sandwich which i have raved about before. Overall a very enjoyable lunch!
