We prefer local restaurants to chains and this didnot disappoint. We went for lunch. While the place is small the food was good and came out in a timely manner and our waitress was great.

Great atmosphere and service. Large portions and tasty food. This place gets busy for a reason, it is a local favorite. The family is very active in the community, they care about Helena and love to serve great food with a down home atmosphere.
