“Truck stop restaraunt that I will return to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Ridiculous!! I am surprised there are not more truck accidents after they leave this place. The amount of great food you get will put anyone to sleep. This is an old school type diner with some great home cookin food. Try the country fried steak and be prepared for your heart to slow down. Fabulous!!!

“Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

It's not fancy but you will love their food . We ate here because we could not get in at Paul Bunyan in the Dells . We ate from the breakfast buffet , the waitstaff got us seated very quick , got our drinks and kept the buffet filled .

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

This is a truck stop.
They had a prime rib buffet that most truckers got.
At $16.00 each, it was a bit much for my wife and myself ($32.00 total).
We had a rib-eye and split it, my wife also had the salad bar.
The fresh bread was outstanding.
Do I need to say, the food is served on a (you guessed it) a "iron skillet".

“Just your average truckstop restaurant.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

People my wife works with were comstantly raving about this place and how good the food was. So of course we had to try it out and the opinion of us is meh, it's ok but nothing I would go to again. Pretty good sized buffet with a decent selection but nothing stood out as being a "must try".If you happen to be driving by and need gas and possibly a bite to eat it's fine, you won't get sick as the food is all edible, but it's nothing to make a special stop for.
