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.
