We often eat here when in town. The staff is friendly and helpful and the food is hearty and plenty of it. They pride them selves in offering Longhorn lean burgers and bison with of course regular burger. The french dip and salmon sandwich are very flavorful. My favorite is the breakfast on Sunday morning.

Here's a must try: Spinach Tortellini Soup. Homemade, touch of tarragon, just simply delicious. The Homemade Ranch Dressing accompanied a crisp green salad served on a cold plate. Perfect. Ended with a slice of cherry pie. Delicious crust, fab pie. I highly recommend this spot for a meal!

This is a very nice little restaurant located on US-2. Our friends who live nearby recommended this place for lunch, and we are pleased that we went. While the choices are fairly familiar lunch items, they are very well prepared. My BLT with avocado was very good, and my wife's loaded hot dog was great as well. Nice place to... More

Great hamburgers, salads and soups. They added beer and wine this year. We eat here every year when we attend the STOKR bicycle event in May.

This is not a big place and has few parking spaces. Near the north edge of town and easy to miss headed South if you aren't looking for it. Mostly burgers but an interesting choice of meats to put inside...I like the Bison Burger. This is a family operation (mostly) and is usually open 8am - 8pm...but not Sunday. Hours... More
