Great food

We are spending the week at a good Sam rally and several people told us how good it was, so we tried it. They have a great selection of food,something for everyone. I had the pot roast,it was very tender and more than I could eat. The Resturant was very clean and the service was also very good. It... read more

Home style cooking at its bet. You never walk away hungry. Great variety of food. Come on the weekends when steaks and prime rib are their specials

This was our first time eating here. We each had the mini-volcano breakfast. Sausage had nice snap. Not overdone on the seasonings. Thick slice of bacon prepared just right. Pancakes were delicious. Our server was great. Kept the coffee topped off, made sure everything was to our satisfaction. Attentive without being pushy or too chatty. I liked that they offered... More

This was a great place to eat - it was packed and we had to wait to be seated for about 15 minutes but it was worth it after being on the road all day. It was within walking distance to the hotel and offered a good selection of food.

My almond breaded trout was okay. Nothing exciting. A bit like old fashioned country home cooking. Big portions. Friendly service.

Good steaks, fish entrees, burgers, and salads. I highly recommend this place. and the service is outstanding. It does get crowded sometimes, so plan accordingly.

Walking distance from the Super 8 Hotel on Dysart in Goodyear AZ. Food tends to be salty. Desserts are outrageous (Good)
