Tenderloins in the Midwest are a must try, and Big Dave and Holly's tenderloins are some of the best I have ever had! To begin with, to say that they are huge is an understatement. A single bun is a far cry from being able to contain one of these bad boys. But even more important than the size of... More

Stopped here on the rec of a local antique store employee- said it was best burger in entire Quad City area. Boy- was she right- a delicious crispy edged burger cooked on the griddle with delicious fried onions. Place is tiny but do not let that stop you stopping .

Holly makes the best burgers, we call them Hollyburgers. Reuben is good too. Very small, not much seating inside, but some picnic tables on the outside. We often drive there to pick up a "go" order. It is on north side of town, so keep going north on highway 67.

We had lunch here on a Friday. It was not very busy, except for a few regulars. We all loved our food and deserts. The waitress suggested the pork tenderloin sandwich with the additions of pepper jack cheese, barbecue sauce, and pickes. Both my husband and I ordered and loved it! It's not on the regular menu though, so font... More

Friendly service.....good portions.....prices were fine. We had the Reuben and pork tenderloin, and the tenderloin is large. Both sandwiches and the generous sides were tasty.....most definitely will come back. Funny story: The view over the river has train tracks in front, and a train slowly came by as we ate. Train stopped and backed up a few cars, but the... More

Simple and small but big on service, quality and taste. The pork tenderloin sandwich could feed two! The chicken tender salad also large in size and flavor. We would go out of our way to eat here again!
