Good Prime Rib & Fried Chicken at small town prices!

Large family party room for 30 on a Sunday afternoon. Our server was pleasant and trying very hard---solo. My only quibble would be the management or lack thereof. No bussers or food runners, and if there was an expeditor, not very good. As it was orders were taken and entered in segments such that... read more

For a town of about 20,000 this restaurant is definitely local flavor. The building is old and the interior is plane country but reasonably nice and clean appearing. It's a safe environment with good friendly service. I ordered their 8oz Prime Rib, loaded baked potato, green beans, and a Pepsi, all for about $18.00 (not bad). The Prime came out... More

While the building is showing it's age and the food and service has declined over the years, they still have good steaks and decent appetizers.

Fried chicken is pretty good. Most of the food I have gotten has been less than stellar. Seems like they buy on the cheap - prime rib for example, was tough.

Everything was great, soup, bbq, Mexican food, kids food. Only downside was a few dead bugs in bathroom and clogged bathroom sink. But definitely our new favorite.

We had the chicken fried steak and hash browns. The meat was a cheap cut and full of fatty unedable meat. Hash browns were soggy. Service was slow. Haven't been back since.

Okay, I know you don't go to a restaurant for just service and drinks. Love the cheese/chips before the meal. My mom used to order the 1/2 order of the Realeato. Im not much of a mexican food guy. I usually have a sirloin steak or 1/2 a chicken. Chicken is always great, steak is a hit/miss on the cut... More
