I like their famous junkyard burger with a aoli sauce. Yum! They also have fresh veggies in their delicious salads. Small place with a few tables, but I like to sit at their beautiful new wood counter. Not much room for big parties.

A little hole in the wall with the best food. The place is in walking distance from the hotel we stayed at the stagecoach inn. I had a sandwich and my husband had a burger he said it was one of the best he has ever had.

The friendly lady at the front desk of our hotel recommended the Junk Yard. My husband was starving and ordered a bowl of their chipotle chicken and corn soup as we walked in the door. It was divine! Served within 3 mins as well so perhaps the service has improved since the most recent reviews were written. We had the... More

Hadn't figured on finding a Banh Mi sandwich in Salmon. A welcome alternative to the typical "Me too" food options.

We had dinner here one evening in September 2016. The food was good enough and the portion size was ok. However, the service was inattentive at best. I'm not sure that we would return here if we ever pass through Salmon again.

We were almost afraid to open the door. It looked like a run-down warehouse. But inside was what might be called "a hole-in-the wall" diner, that all the locals seemed to know about and the restaurant was full. There were vegetarian options, and several salads and sandwiches to choose from. It was a very pleasant experience with delicious food and... More

We stopped in on a cold, rainy Sunday for a burger. The waitress was not very attentive and business was slow...so wonder how inattentive she would be with a crowd. Both burgers were cooked too well done. We assume when we aren't asked how we want our burgers, that there is no choice. I would definitely ask if we find... More
