The service was terrible constantly had empty drinks & the nachos were way to salty. Nice atmosphere but that's about it.

Had the brisket and rib combo. Ribs weren't to my liking but the brisket was great. Also had the onion rings that were billed as billings best and the weren't wrong. Karla was our friendly server who did a great job. Well done

This dinner was amazing! Bartender and waitstaff were friendly and informative. This was one of the best steaks we have ever had!! We also had shrimp wontons and ahi tuna at the bar before dinner - delicious! (Watch out for the hot mustard!)

We ate at Rex today as we were traveling to Glacier National Park. I had the Chicken Quesadilla and my husband had the Buffalo Burger. Both were delicious and eating outside on the patio was the perfect atmosphere for two weary travellers.
