Good food with good service. Was glad to see this place after a horrible experience the night before at Whiskey Creek. Nice girl at the counter to take our order. Had special request on order and was no problem.

Stopped for lunch while traveling up I29. The food was good, not great, but overpriced. The service was good. The restaurant was clean but the restroom was not.
