"We had an early dinner there while traveling. My husband had the diablo burger with sweet potato fries and I had the garlic sirloin with a baked potato.

Just a warning: the fries are home-mad..."e, from real potatoes, but the oil is not up to my standards, so I skip them too, and get the Cole-slaw instead. As others have said, the pies are delicious (and dangerous). Great service, friendly atmosphere.
