We hoped for a simple lunch. Husband ordered the cheeseburger with fries. The bottom bun was slathered with garlic butter? No pickles but tones of sliced cukes. Burger itself was big but too big. It was more like a small meatloaf. On top was a bunch of blue and feta cheese. Is this what you expect when you order a... More

Ordered wheat toast and got burnt 9 grain. Ordered crispy hashbrowns and got soggy burnt ones. What's with the charcoal? The owner also degraded one of the workers in front of others. Not cool.

The food here is excellent, nothing fancy but most menu items are made from scratch. It's a small place with a cute rustic décor, service is acceptable given the fact only one person runs the front of the house, winter hours are limited so go early during the off season. It's a nice alternative to the typical fast food joint... More

If I can go out for lunch during the week, this is one of my top choices. I love their Harvest Burger with Spinach Tortellini soup. I used to get it with the emu patty but they've replaced that option with Longhorn a couple of years ago. Longhorn has more flavor than the Angus patty but I'm not sure if... More

We ordered two large hambugers to go. They were runny and very messy and soaked the the bread part of the burgers. We have never returned and probably won't again.

Was in town and doing some genealogy and found the Cafe in the AMA Tour Book. Very unique place to eat. The decor was very different but great. Our waiter was friendly. The food was delicious. Two of us had breakfast and 2 had bison burgers. All the food was great.

This breakfast was very good. My over medium eggs were cooked perfectly. White toast had burnt around the edges and I don't like burnt food. I made due by not eating the crust. Hash browns were great but that's always my fav part of the breakfast meal. Hubby had biscuits and gravy and he cleaned his plate. That's a good... More

The atmosphere at The Last Straw was fun. We wanted to go and see what had been done to the former Jack's Zip In. I liked my clam chowder, but it wasn't your typical milky mushy chowder. The burgers and fries and onion rings and hashbrowns were all good. My husband liked the hashbrown option with his burger. Beware the... More
