Stopped by here after a good hike. Great location- right near the middle of town. We were greeted as soon as we walked in. Food was really fast, got in within 15 minutes of ordering.

The salsa with her meal was fresh and tasted... More

Delicious food without the long wait you can run into on main street during ski season along with some unique dipping sauces. Cold beer with some good selection of breweries too.
