Great Breakfast Place

This is a great place for breakfast. They have Tacos of all types for breakfast. And of course the " regular" tacos like Port Verde and Beef Fajita.I had an Egg Taco with sausage; Very good. they also have a good selection of French Toast and the portins are a good size. You won't go hungry

We had heard wonderful things about this restaurant. The barbeque was above average but the service was horrible. We were offended by several of the staff talking about another staff member masterbating in a parking lot while picking up supplies. There were also a lot of cuss words used. In listening to the conversation, it was obvious that it included... More

Stopped here for lunch the other day after seeing a lot people eating outside the night before. There was one other group eating lunch besides us. We opted to eat outside at one of the picnic tables. After ordering we were informed they were out of two of the side dishes we ordered ( fries and beans) but then waitress... More

Very good BBQ (especially the pulled pork and the brisket). Front of house was a complete mess though - we had to wait 45 minutes for our order, and another table was told that it would be 1.5 hours before their food would be ready (30 mins after ordering!). Worth the wait for us, however!

Excellent brisket - was moist, very good pulled pork, and the ribs were tasty with a heavy dose of smoke. Good beer on tap, fresh iced tea and lemonade. We ate outside with live music. Was a great meal overall.

I have like the food here (we've gone many times) but after tonight I doubt I'll ever go back. What is with this place and the horrible service???? Don't they realize customers keep their restaurant in business? Okay, fine - it's July, it's busy, people are swarming in Whitefish - we all get it. But here are some tips for... More

I can't review their food, because I left before we got our order. We had been there 45 mins when the server said that food was still another hour and a half for our food.

We stopped here on a Sunday, early afternoon. Seemed to only have one waitress and she was kept very busy. Our service was a bit slower than we would have normally liked, but we could see that she was handling the customers outside, as well as those of us seated inside. She wasn't 'slacking' but just very busy so not... More

Went to eat with some family and were totally ignored by waitress.......so we left. The waitress saw us come in, but never even acknowledged us. We waited 15 minutes and decided to leave......she even looked at us, but didn't even make the effort to come over and say if they were short handed or whatever....it was not that busy and... More
