Very good food served quickly. Very clean dining area and toilets. We were happy to have found the restaurant while on a long trip. Prices were a bit expensive AND I suspect they need to be.

Burgers are excellent. Fries are plenty. Onion ring are best! The ice cream cones are an absolute must. A nice grassy quiet seating area in the back. Worth a stop every trip through. Cash only.
