A nice lunch after apple picking in Malta!

We stopped for lunch on a Sunday afternoon and was happy to see them quickly set up a table for our family of eleven. The waitress was excellent. She managed our orders perfectly and delivered our meals in a timely fashion. The food was good. Nothing outstanding but the burgers, and other luncheon... read more

We were really surprised when we stopped on I-39 for an early lunch, and found two dishes with green chile on the breakfast menu: a breakfast burrito and a chicken wrap. My husband and I each chose one, and both of us were very pleased with our choice. We met and married in New Mexico, so green chile is something... More

Great food, available 24 hours daily. Excellent salad bar and buffet plus an extensive menu. My family likes to visit Sundays between noon and 3 pm when their buffet includes both breakfast and dinner selections. I usually choose pancakes, hash browns, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, soup,,meat loaf, vegetables, potatoes, chicken and ribs. You won't leave hungry!

I paid for my food, yet the chef asked numerous times if I had paid, and then asked the waitress another time before I was handed my meal. What a way to treat a customer. The salad bar had brown lettuce, so I couldn't even make a decent salad. I'll never come back.

The Iron Skillet is a typical "trucker stop." Buffet of lots of Carbs!! They also have a menu that you can order from. The food is okay but it's not a place to stop if you are in a hurry.

Went in for lunch, our waitress was low to greet us, slow to take our order, slow to refill drink glasses, and never did bring a To-Go cup after 15 minutes! The restaurant wasn't all that busy, but she sure didn't think he needed to put out that much energy in the middle of the day. Over Priced, Under Appreciated,... More

I had a flat tire on my tractor..I supposed to pick a load to get home by Christmas... Waiting for hours and hours.. The mechanics are paid by hours and they don't give a sh that you have a family. It is a shame.

I loved the Louisiana Whitefish. The half plate for $9.99 was still a huge piece of fish, with a side and a trip to the salad bar. My friend got the full plate for $11.99 which had two massive pieces of fish. My husband got the chicken strips, which turned out to be the best we've ever had. They were... More
