Have for years made this a stop for a nice burger lunch. Not anymore. Used to be my wife and I could split a burger and feel full. This time the meat paddy was about half the size of what we've had in in the...More

Kids wanted burgers! Went for lunch and it was pretty good! Husband and I had salads which were ok. Kids enjoyed the burgers and fries! Beer on tap so A in our books!

We were the only ones there which made me a bit wary. Had an omelette and breakfast burrito. Both were great, best breakfast on the trip. Service was fine, given we were alone most of the time.
