Went in for lunch, was 5 in our party. The waitress started taking orders when I went to order I ordered a small bowl of chili and was about to finish ordering the waitress told me since my mom ordered nachos and it was a...big order, I could just share it with her. I wasn't going to order nachos. I was speechless and shocked. then she went to my husband, and he was ordering. I interrupted her and said at least bring me a side order of fries she then told my husband that she would make his side order fries and I could eat those, and she walked away. I was so pissed off. I watched everyone eat a full meal. I ate a small bowl of chili. I couldn't even speak to her after that. I paid $118 for a meal, and I didn't get to eat other than the chili. I will never go back there. I am 52 years old and to have someone treat me like a child just Pissed me off to the point I couldn't speak to her. I have never had that experience before anywhere. she wanted me to eat from other people's plates. she should have let me order instead of making the choice for me. Normally I would say something if I wasn't happy, but I was so taken back, I just knew I needed to keep my mouth shut. It would have been a huge problem. She missed out on a very good tip. Maybe she should be more careful. I will be calling the manager and placing a formal complaint.More

We had breakfast here on the recommendation from our hotel. It did not disappoint. We had the locals favorite; biscuits with sausage gravy, egg and "those potatoes" It was a very generous portion and very good. Our waitress was so friendly. Great stop.

My spouse and I shared the bratwurst and a patty melt. Everything tasted delicious. I'm not the biggest sauerkraut fan but this was the best I've ever tasted! I ate it up. The beer we ordered (the HB) was tasty too. The service was friendly...and helpful, even though they were packed. We wish we would've had room for dessert. It looked delicious but we were full from the ample-sized dinner servings.More

The food was good and hot. We had fish and chips and fish tacos. The best of the food were the chips, which were hot and crispy. The tacos were okay but nothing extraordinary. They give you plenty of food. The waitress was very good...with a great attitude.More

This is one wonderful restaurant. Great food, large portions and a terrific wait staff. Three of us got the brat, and one the Philly cheese steak (which is the largest one I’ve ever seen). Two of the brats had the sauerkraut, mine I had with...the peppers and onions and a side on onion rings. All the meals were great, and I just can’t stop mentioning how good the staff was.More

Honestly, I can't remember what I ordered for lunch. Maybe it was soup. I only remember that I wanted to save room for the CARROT CAKE! It is Famous, and for good reason. It is The Best Ever! The restaurant is a chunk of Americana...with the walls covered with signs, license plates, antique furniture, and of course, a huge elk overlooking the room! Don't miss this Blast from the Past!More

It is not always easy to get a good quality meal on the road-especially as a vegetarian who travels with a carnivore! We were both happy eating lynch here. I had a piping hot black bean veggie burger served in a pretzel bun. It was...one of the best vegfie burgers I have had in a long time. Service was cheerful and efficient.

Very unassuming, but an awesome place. We had the Reuben and Club sandwiches. Both were great. In fact, the Reuben was probably the best we have ever had. Homemade coleslaw and potato salad on the side were tasty too.

We were going to try the Roadkill Cafe but it had closed at 8pm. Lilo's was supposed to close at 830,we arrived at 825 and they got us seated. We ordered quickly,got the cheeseburger and a French dip. Large portions and delicious! Get ranch with...your fries:) We ate while they closed up but we were never rushed. Super sweet waitress,long blonde hair in a ponytail? I forgot to get her name but she was great. Looking forward to trying breakfast tomorrow even though at the moment we are very full!More
