It was difficult to find, since it's located at the Econo Lodge at 3706 National Parks Hwy. once we finally figured that out, went in, we were quite surprised! The bartender (and for the life of me, I cannot remember her name) was fantastic! Her name started with a "J," but I couldn't pronounce it, so can't recall it. My... More

It isn't on the menu on the table,... More
