A local native American owned restaurant that is large, clean and bright. Basic diner food well prepared. An added plus of shopping while you eat. Native American jewelry makers present their products here and outside. Very good prices on the food and the jewelry.

I've been going to Earl's since the late 70's, their food is always good to excellent, the staff is friendly and I enjoy the native craftsmen selling wares. Sometimes the food is better than others, but I've never left unhappy.

Like the others, I don't think they deliver. LIke many restaurants, they probably provide take-out service. Getting some rest may be the one thing on your mind, but it's a delightful venue with an extensive menu. I... More
