West 40 has local flavor written all over it, from the decor to the table settings and friendly service. I loved it as soon as I entered. It looked like the kind of place that serves home cooking and plenty of it. My mistake was ordering the fish basket instead of one of the specials. I let my hankering for... More

We arrived and waited at least 15 minutes before a waitress "took our table" after we had signaled several times. We waited another 15 minutes before our order was taken. Another 15 minutes before she came back to say the hot sauce for the wings had gone missing and she needed to revise our friend's order. Another 15-20 minutes passed... More

Very nice family restaurant. The service was very good. The food is also good. I would recommend this restaurant to friends looking for a nice dinner out with their kids. Not a super fancy menu, but good All-American fare. Not a "gold mine," but a rock solid restaurant.

We had a light dinner meal, French dip sandwich and a bowl of chili along with a soda pop. The food was well prepared and tasty. The service by Jean was excellant.

Only have been here for breakfast, but everything we have tired has been great! The staff is very friendly and accommodating! I would suggest this restaurant to anyone looking for some good "down home" "homecooked" breakfast!

Very likely the busiest restaurant in town. There's people here all the time eating food that I do not enjoy. I like tractors and I also like prime rib

Waited over an hour for our food. Food was only okay. Not worth the wait. Restaurant was not very clean. Ants in the bathroom. Service was lacking. I won't go back.

Food was good, Tabitha was super friendly and we will for sure go again next year. We had sirloin steaks, fried chicken and patty melt. All was very good and price reasonable for the quality and selection.

I met my sister and brother-in-law for a quick and tasty lunch today at West 40. West 40 was a quick and easy stop for them as they traveled west to MT to a graduation. Service was fast and good, prices were quite reasonable. My brother-in-law got a humongous piece of meatloaf. Home cooked and good sized portions all around.... More

If you like a great breakfast this is the place for you. The restaurant is large enough to accommodate a large group. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
