Great Food

We came for lunch and were super impressed with the food. The portions were plentiful and the flavor was amazing. However I agree with the other comments about the service, it was just so so. The smiles ? felt perfunctory and not genuine. I had to ask for a refill on my water. We will... read more

We've had breakfast at Hillbillies 3 times, and each time our meals were excellent! We hadn't eaten there prior to the makeover from the tv show Restaurant Impossible, so can't compare the before and after. But the before is water under the bridge, and after is simply delicious! We've tried different items on each visit and have had nothing but... More

The food was awesome but the service was meeh - it took forever for the waitress to refill our waters and we had to get our own sugar & hot sauce after waiting for 5 minutes from another table because she forgot about us. The decor was pretty cool too!

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to the caverns. As we walked in we were greeted by the waitress and I begin to tell her to please seat us away from the other 4 occupied tables, because our toddler was being a little bit cranky. Before I could even finish talking she "says well I'm here all alone... More

Her reply was it was a frozen patty and wasn't very good so I ordered chicken fingers with sweet potato fries. When my order came out the chicken was... More

We first tried this restaurant about a year ago and were not impressed. The food was mediocre and the staff didn't appear to be interested in being there. Heard that they had changed things up and tried it again. The food was tasty with a fair variety for breakfast. The service was friendly and efficient. We will definitely be adding... More

Hubby and I stopped for lunch on a Sunday at noon. Hostess and waitress both very friendly. We ordered the Tri Tip sandwich and The Beaver (tri tip sandwich with coleslaw, bbq sauce and sweet pickles). Both of us had onion rings. Our food was delicious!! The Beaver would never have been something I would order but hubby and I... More

We were there before Restaurant Impossible was there but based on our visit, we will never, ever, return. Filth was the word to describe this place!
