“Biker Hangout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We have eaten here several times . This is a great place for bikers to ride in and just hang out. The food is great and plentiful, the service is good also. One thing you need to check is their times.We almost missed eating there because they close at 3 pm on Sundays. Another thing to be aware of is low flying planes. That's right! We were sitting outside eating(they have inside and outside seating) a couple of years ago and a P-47 Thunderbolt(WWII), came flying in at treetop level. Scared the bejeezus right out of everyone. I found out later the guy parks his plane on his farm not far from the Under Cliff. But it's still a great place to eat. Just be ready to duck.

“Eclectic local flavor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

“Eclectic local flavor” would be my choice of a description for this establishment. Various businesses have occupied this location for decades, back to the 20s and beyond. The current owners have obviously tried hard to increase their customer base and it has shown results with good reviews in TA. On that basis, I decided to make the 15 minute drive from Joplin for breakfast. First caveat; they only do breakfast on certain days of the week, so check first. No problem, it was time for lunch anyway. Second caveat; as I walked in, I was reminded that not all eating establishments are “Smoke Free” and then I reminded myself the word “Bar” was in the name. There was a small bar with customers “bellied up” at 1130 in the morning. But the odor was only slightly noticeable. There are ceiling fans and apparently a very good ventilation system. Now for the good stuff. I choose a beef burrito, with chili topping and black bean side and a coffee. Great breakfast! After a fashionable wait time the food arrived very fresh, well presented and delicious. The portion was generous and as I watched other dinners being served, it appeared that was the norm here. The menu selection was varied and I will have to return several times to get a good cross section. There’s outdoor seating for the warmer months. As several reviewers have mentioned, when it’s very crowded, I can see it taking a while to be served. But go with the right frame of mind and enjoy the local ambiance.

“Great place for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We saw good reviews on TripAdvisor and stopped here for breakfast on the way to Kansas City. We were not disappointed. Great place for breakfast on the weekends. I had eggs, bacon and side of dollar pancakes. Good coffee. Yeah, you could probably get a good breakfast at an IHOP or Denny's too, but much more quirky atmosphere and local color here.
