Try the Taco salad

Van's is one of the old fashioned restaurants. The lunch menu is changing on a monthly base. If it is available try the Taco salad together with one of the coconut creme pies. The staff is very friendly and the food is served fast.

We had a group of 15 stop in here after canoeing. The staff was friendly and the service was good, but the food was severely lacking. Most of the food was frozen, prepackaged stuff, cheeseburgers, BBQ meat etc. The "bacon" on their cheesy bacon potatoes was packaged bacon bits type stuff, not 'real' bacon.

When I showed the owner the quilt he gave me a new "T" to replace the one on the quilt that I cut... More

Being British i'm really not that used to BBQ like America offers but I'm becoming more used to it now. I thought the food here was delicious and is one of the best BBQ places i've eaten in.
