Good food, bar, Cash Only! They do have a ATM that charges fees! I wonder why they don't take cards? Only restaurant in Cambria that does this.

I've had lunch here a few times and it is always great. The burgers are big and juicy. We got a basket of fries and it is enough for four people. The prices are good and staff are friendly.

Very unique place. Ordered at the counter and they called out your number when order was ready. Quality of food and portions were superb. Had nice craft beer selection and bartender was knowledgeable and friendly. A nice choice for dinner.

I don't agree they are just fast food. If you like BBQ they serve some good food.
