After a long day of travel across Kansas we stopped in Burlingyon for the night. Not wanting to drive for dinner we opted to walk across from the motel to the Route. The decor is a bit dated but clean. Anita our server was very accommodating and friendly. The food was outstanding. Ribeyes are cut to order and grilled perfectly... More

We had been on the road for 18 days. We just wanted a nice Steakhouse to eat at. We checked with OnStar and our GPS. This was the ONLY thing in the area. It looked good on paper, But that was it! The waitstaff was great but the food was not so good. I always get a "Filet" all meat... More

Well the outside apperance should have been our first clue. Not that it was shabby, just not in prime condition. We had looked elsewhere to eat but places were closed so we chose to eat here. We had the strip special. I asked what was on the potatoe and was told cheese, butter, chives, bacon, and sour cream. After bill... More

We viewed the menu here on TripAdvisor and the choices looked good. We had decided before hand to get the rib eye steak. When we entered the restaurant on a Friday we were told it was only a buffet with prime rib on it. The menu says Friday's special is prime rib but nothing about a buffet. We couldn't order... More

This "steak" house is not much of a steak house. Our party of five was pretty much disappointed from our drink order to our steaks. Three of us ordered Bloody Marys and were shocked when we took our first sip...it was sweet instead of what you would think a Bloody Mary should taste like. We sent them back... Croutons on... More

We were in Burlington for an overnight stay, and the Best Western's restaurant was closed, so we found this steakhouse. We were seated quickly, greeted upon entering, and all the staff was pleasant. The food was good but not great, and the prices were not bad. The restaurant was clean and comfortable, and it was located right on the hwy... More

Burlington was the half way point for our Spring Fling motorcycle trip. We had been traveling for almost 400 miles and were ready for a good meal. My wife had seen this restaurant enroute to our hotel. The clerk warned us that there were mixed reviews-mostly about the service. We decided to try anyway. We were quickly greeted and then... More

We were in Burlington for a conference and just wanted dinner and drinks. This was the place! The service was prompt and very friendly and the prices are outstanding. Food was wonderful, I highly recommend the sweet and spicy wings! Ordered a combo fajitas and a couple of beers and left under $40! Definitely would return!

I sat at the bar and, unlike others, got good service. It was walking distance from my motel, which was half the reason to eat there. Steak and salad were above average, veggies average.
