This was a little out of our way but we timed it right for lunch on our way to the Black Hills. Fried Chicken was simple, tasty, no heavy batter to fight through and PIPING HOT! Mashed potatoes were delicious. My husband's food was just...More

Dear Guest: I apologize for the recent dining experience. I can honestly tell you this was most certainly a abnormality. For the last 30 years the growth of my business has been based on the quality of our food and service. We serve over 9000...More

You can probably call and get a gift certificate. As to how much the breakfast buffet is, are you serious? You probably would be embarrassed at it's price if you tried to pay with a visa card. Cost is next to nothing for... More
