We had an excellent experience here! The chicken fried steak was delicious, the huevos rancheros was extra amazing! Ask for Judy, her recommendations and service was fantastic!

We are travelling through the southwest on vacation to see the country. As we go, we try to take out meals at little local restaurants and stay our of the big chains and fast food.

We stopped in for luch, I had a burger, hubby had a smothered steak. He was surprised to find it was indeed a smothered chop steak. Otherwise it was tasty, and neither of us regretted the meal and neither did our wallets.

Food is what you would expect from a truck stop. Service was quick and our server was very pleasant and friendly.

There is nothing I can think of that they do well...they serve food and people eat it but I will never understand why. The steaks arent that nice and neither is anything else.

I was staying down the street and thought I was going to have to eat at McDonald's. I took a drive and saw Cooks and gave it a try. The young ladies working were warm and friendly. The sandwich I ordered was hot and good. For what it is...a diner-type restaurant... it's a 5.

Trucker food is trucker food and this doesn't even qualify as that! I can deal with the somewhat dirty atmosphere, not so clean dishes, poor beyond poor service, but the food has got to make it. A hungry trucker, a traveling family, or the late night after bar crowd, still deserves a decent, I say decent, cup of coffee at... More
