Stopped for lunch on a weekday while travelling on Highway 60. We had smoked burgers and wings with a ceaser salad and soup of the day. We thoroughly enjoyed everything. Well worth the stop. Will return again.

We stopped here for lunch on a family vacation. We were the only ones in the place since it was early in the week and early afternoon. The chicken wings were awesome, not breaded and a wonderful honey garlic sauce. Our server was also excellent!
