If you want to know one of the last real saloon from west you must to go in this local. All installations remember all of you see in the movies! Also the smell too. Take a seat in the bar and enjoy a tap beer.

Stopped on the way back to motel for a nightcap after dinner, service was friendly and quick. Watch what you do with the matchbooks, our 15 year old found the homonyms a little too amusing ;-)

Stopped by for a couple of drinks on a Saturday night as part of a bachelor party. I loved this place. Unpretentious, lively, friendly, crowded place that made me think of heartland America. I wanted to stay longer but we still had lots of ground...More
