A nice western style restaurant with basic American cuisine (mostly hamburgers and other sandwiches). Compared to other similar places the prices are low and the food was good but basic. The waitress was efficient and had a great sense of humor.

This is the place for folks who aren't looking for titillation, but rather for comfort, honesty, and a bit of old-time quality. It's a drive, that's for sure, no matter where you're coming from. And it's worth it.

I haven't eaten there since the new ownership took over in September 2015. This is a small town country café with small town friendly service. In fact, it's the only place in town to eat.

Excellent sandwiches, very friendly family owned restaurant, almost too much food on the plate. Come with an empty stomach. Motorcycle friendly.
