My brother and I visited my Dad and ate here, as we have many times before. You always get good food and great service in this small town restaurant. The buffets are always good, the salad bar is inexpensive and the Flash Burger is a favorite!

We had the unfortunate experience of choosing Boike's for a late breakfast/early lunch stop on our way through town. We should have turned right around and walked out but we didn't. The waitress said they were only serving the buffet today because they had a full house. Which could have been true before we got there, but they were far... More
