I was overnighting at a hotel and drove here for takeout. Everything was delicious and still hot by the time I got back to my room. Plenty of things in the gift shop to look at while waiting. Very nice staff.

Great restaurant on Route 66, the family also own kix on 66. We had a great dinner including free salad bar which was great and cost us $24 for the two of us, no drinks. Great to support this non chain restaurant
