On a camping trip we stopped for a late lunch . Felt extremely welcomed by the owners and bartender . Had the best French dip Iv ever had by far . Lots of seating and great atmosphere . The perfect cowboy stop . Filled with locals and people just passing by .

Sorry to say but I think I have been there on days when the cook wasn't at there best. Just wasn't too impressed.

The food was OK - large burgers, good fries, chicken strips. Don't expect anything gourmet. They have a small wine and beer list.

Under new ownership. Food is pretty darn good, and the people are very friendly. Plus they now have a liquor license. RJ's you've got competition. Ain't America great?

The restaurant has changed there name to Timber Wolf Cafe. We really enjoy the atmosphere and food. The salad was fresh and we have loved everything we have tried here. The service is prompt and friendly. Defiantly a place to stop and visit. There is also a cozy lounge attached to the cafe.

This won't set any record for decor (I'm eating, not site seeing!),but the food was tasty, reasonably priced and the staff were simply awesome. I would definitely eat here again and heartily recommend it.

We recently ate dinner at Big Timber and had 2 great meals. My boyfriend ordered the 3 piece fried chicken dinner. The chicken pieces were large, meaty and flavorful.
