Nice surprise

Split a quarter order of ribs with husband. (Five ribs) meat was falling off the bone. Very tasty. Also had the key lime pie, which was delicious. Clean restaurant. Very friendly waitstaff. Inexpensive. Well worth the stop

Was given gift certificates for this restaurant... $225. Worth. New owner refused to honor any of them stating that he's the new owner and he won't honor any from the past owner! Did this with a really nasty attitude in front of other customers. Bad move buddy. Several guests left when they witnessed this and we will never return to... More

Homestlye food in large portions that amazed my taste buds. It may be 8000 feet in the air, but the drive up is worth it. I got a bacon cheesburger meal for 12.99 and only finished half of all of it. I recommend it for fun trips

My husband and I decided to drive the 28 miles up to the top of Mt. Lemmon. We had lunch at the Sawmill Run restaurant. Wonderful time. The service was excellent, staff very friendly, and the food was delicious. The cherry cobbler......to die for. Definitely worth the drive.

We were going up to Mr. Lemmon to bird watch and checked TripAdvisor for a place to have lunch. This place was great and deserved its good ratings. My husband had the brisket dip and I had the pulled pork. Both were delicious as were the sides-house made chips, mac n cheese that tasted homemade and sweet potato tots that... More

We stopped for lunch and we found serendipity. The service was good to set the tone for a tasty light lunch well prepared. We had a green chili bacon cheeseburger, a spinach dip with loads of pita, carrot and celery sticks and a more than delicious bowl of turkey chili. This was a golden opportunity to not only dine but... More

I arrived for a late lunch and was promptly greeted by the manager,seated and served a tall glass of ice water with lemon by my server, Sabrina. I ordered the "Monster" chicken bagette with mac and cheese and a salad. While waiting I took note of the decor. Very interesting restaurant. A lot of logging artifacts were used including two...

If you like the smell of barbecue you will definitely like this place. Service was fast. Staff were friendly and keen to chat. Food was fast food but very good for what you get. Bathrooms were incredibly modern and clean. If that's the standard one can only imagine what the kitchen would be like. We will be back.

Service was a little slow, but the food was worth the wait. Lots of clean plates at our table. If you can, eat outside on the patio. It was too cold for them to serve out there, but a wonderful wood fire was burning in the outdoor fireplace. We enjoyed waiting for our table by the fire.
