We ordered burgers and beer and it was great! Quaint, little restaurant that is right on the main strip of Mt. Home with a fun atmosphere. It’s a great place for a fun date night! Good prices and service was good also.

The food was decent, but the building needs major maintenance. It felt dirty and the air vents had mold on them. This place probably needs a complete remodel.
