This is a true heart-clogger only those with stomachs of steel and bowels of brass can take on: three eggs (any way you like ’em), two meats (patties, links, or bacon), pancakes or French toast, two massive servings of hash browns, two slices of toast (white or wheat), and the required biscuits and sausage gravy, all served on a gigantic pizza platter. The first time I visited the restaurant there

IMPEACHMENT WITNESS FLIPS ON TRUMP: In explosive testimony, Ambassador Gordan Sondland will be the first impeachment witness to directly implicate Pres. Trump in bribery. Sondland is a Trump megadonor who the president named EU ambassador. He held multiple direct conversations with Trump about pressuring Ukraine to investigate Trump's political rivals in exchange for U.S. military aid. Sondland is testifying that he 'followed the president’s orders' in carrying out the quid pro quo, directly linking Trump to an abuse of power.

English actor Arthur Treacher was born on this day in 1894. The fish-and-chips chain was named after him. There are only a handful left. What are your memories of Arthur Treacher's restaurants?

"I feel ripped off! Ijust went to the Lamp post, but never again! Really, total bill $24.00. I ordered BLT, what I got was i xtacked sandwich on thick sliced bread that had been put under a broiler. It was burned black and crisp hard. the bottom bread was soggy. It was the worst sandwich I have ever seen. The witress didn't even ask if we wanted oyr coffee refilled...she brought a box to take my sandwich home.(to throw away sin ce I had to pay for this garbage that was sent to my table.Never ,never will i recommend your business" - Kathryn Snyder (customer review)

On april 1st 2020 i invited family from outta town to try the famous heman. Well how disappointed i was. Ive tried to get the mattwr resolved bc food was awlful. Left my name n number for 2 days now with no response. SO IF THE OWNER READS THIS PLEASE CONTACT ME. VERY UNHAPPY CUSTOMER
I recently have become fond of eating here the prices are very reasonable and food is good. I like the atmosphere so I've been coming here and ordering food to go a lot. After work sometimes I don't close my salon until late and when I get out it's to late to cook. But what I like most is today I stopped in to order food to go. I ran into this nice homeless man. He was sitting outside when I pulled in. After I made my order he came inside and sat beside me. He was getting some coffee. He said hello and I also said hello. I looked to him and I smile and asked if he had some dinner yet I wanted to buy him a meal. But he was very humble and he said he had a sandwich earlier. So I volunteered have him some change to buy a meal for later. What touched me the most is the young ladies who are waitresses were so kind to him. They treated him like a person. Spoke to very kindly gave him coffee. Many times I've witness other establishments they are not very kind to people who are less fortunate then we are. I really respect this establishment. I look forward to supporting this establishment more frequently. I wish that the Lamppost Restaurant had a way that we could donate prepaid meals for the less fortunate. I would be very willing to contribute. I just wanted to share my experience. If everyone treated everyone equally America would be a better place.
Great food,service,and plenty of it! Highly recommend the he-man..then nap time..
The link to your website is bogus... why...?
