The breakfast sandwiches taste great when it is freshly cooked. I think they put a lot of butter to make it taste real good. The coffee is not very good and they use powdered creamer -- not cool. We also purchased lunch to take with us to the national park and it's just OK. I had grilled chicken salad. The... More

Old Dad's is a perfect stop to pick up those vacation week essentials. It is basically an old fashioned general store. We checked into our room then headed in to pick up eggs, bread, milk and a few packaged goods. Making breakfast in the room is a big savings. There are many pancake houses in town, but with a family,... More

For a deli, not too much to choose from, lines can be long and the sandwiches average. Not sure what strengths are there to elaborate upon.

Don't let the name fool you. This is more than just a general store. I love to hike so I always stop here for last minute snacks or things I have forgotten. Sometimes I even see things I didn't know I needed until I saw them. They also have a penny-candy counter that has candy I had when I was... More

Great little general store. A place that has all the needs you could want on a trip at a reasonable price. Took sandwiches up in the park. They were delicious. Went there several times during the week to get items we needed. Friendly staff and very convenient.

This store has almost everything you need from bread to a snake bit kit. I prowled the two aisles and found the things I needed in no time. I found my toothpicks, pop/beer, cheetos. Yes, I like this place and will go back.

Had a better experience this time. Stopped for lunch to go. We drive into park an eat later which is very convenient for that. Our sandwiches were made promptly, even for being as busy as they were. The sandwiches seemed to be better than our stop in April. Don't know why. Tasted better and more meat. This is a great... More
