Found this cafe/bar off Google and thought we would give it a try as it was only a short drive down the road from our motel. We enjoyed the food we ordered the first night we came back again as after our experience by going to DJ'S seen in a separate review, we decided to return here for dinner for... More

The food here was terrible. We order chicken parm, and it basically was a chicken tender with ragu sauce. The pizza had no taste! (Kids would not eat) The service was poor as well.

Is this place italian or meat grill? Italian food here is terrible. The steak on volcanic rock was delicious. Everything else was terrible. The sauce on the pasta and pizza was from a jar of prego -- terrible. Told the waitress the vegetables were the worst I've ever had and she said and did nothing. Go to potbellys or mr.... More

We were here after a long trip in the car, starving, and just wanted to get some grub. The server was trying to be funny but it just came across wrong. You know those guys who try to make a joke but end up insulting his audience? Repeatedly? That was my server. Anyway, the food came out - I ordered... More

We are at a motorcycle rally and the town is gearing up for all the bikers. We went here for dinner and we both had burgers and fries. We really enjoyed our meal and the prices were reasonable. If you're at the rally, go to this place.
