All around good

I'm never disappointed eating here. I come frequently for the Cowboy Killer Baked Potato with pulled pork BBQ, or the fried cod. It's a fun little restaurant with western décor.

This is a very small building on the main street that I initially drove by. Inside is dark and has an old building musty smell. The service once seated was outstanding. Other than that, it was an average meal in a small town. My companions and I sat ourselves after standing awkwardly at the door and then having a gal... More

First visit here on a Saturday night, got a table quickly and the wait staff was attentive, helpful with the menu and truly appeared to be happy to be there. My soda was in a large mason jar and we were given warm cornbread before we even made our selections. The half rack of ribs were tender, meaty and not... More

We ate here last year, and decided to come back, because it was so good. The pulled pork was delicious. Fries were fresh & hot. We had the Miss Piggy pie for dessert, and it was also very good. We will come back when we get back to the area. Waitress was friendly.

We serviced our bride and groom and they had picked Grumpy Jakes for the food. Our company picked up the food and served to the guests. Everything was very hot, ready to serve. The guests enjoyed the food and the price point to serve 180 people seemed reasonable? We did have several coming up for seconds, my guess is that... More

Really great BBQ no matter beef, chicken, or pork. Food is fresh with a real touch of home cooking. Some may find it unusual but we loved it. A common touch with great service and great atmosphere.

We started with the large appetizer sampler plate, and everything tasted the same, overcooked, greasy and not fresh. Our entrees were no better.

To start the waitress was spacey and clueless about anything on the menu, which is fine and I attributed to her possibly being new. The food was TERRIBLE. We started with the sampler appetizer and the zucchini was rock hard, fries were undercooked, bacon was burned, and the cornbread was like eating sand paper. Between 3 steaks ordered medium two...

Had the BBQ Pork at a catered event we attended and it was most excellent. It was tender, tasty and delicious. The provided BBQ sauce and baked beans really set the meal off. I highly recommend them if you travel into the area.

Excellent BBQ and Brisket. If you want great BBQ'd food this would be the place to go on the Show Low/ Pinetop-Lakeside area. Nothing fabcy about the place, just good food!
