“blast from the past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

Some of the best sandwiches you will find. Good Montana restaurant with hardy meals and plenty of it . Not fancy, just good ol food. Steak sandwiches are signature. The atmosphere is great. Old 1940 type garage decor..old signs from days gone by. Just good hardy food and plenty.

“Cute place with okay food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Lots of photos and memorabilia from days as early garage, which is pretty cool. Our food was fine, decent mac and cheese that I had to request be heated more, since it arrived luke warm; and good grilled chicken sandwich. Waitress was a bit brusk but overall service was fine.

“Expensively Bland”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

The Locals will send you to this place and the reviews are high, but we were not impressed. We got Pulled Pork which was season-less, not smoked. BBQ sauce was runny and prices were high. We have Lived in Texas and Georgia, so we know BBQ (Wet & Dry Rub). This place didn’t do it for us. But there were others around us that seemed to love it. There are only 3-4 Places to eat in this town. We would have been better off picking stuff up to eat at Safeway.

“Mouth still watering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We were told that this place was great food known by the locals. Finding it wasn't hard with gps. We're not from around here. Our waitress was really great. Super perky. The strawberry lemonade was perfect. I'm an Idahoan so potatoes are my thing and these mashed were so amazing! I took some back to the hotel with me. My husband had the chicken fried steak and couldn't finish the portion. It was huge. I'd stop here again and again. If I ever came back through here that is.
