Nice local spot to eat - nothing fancy. Freshly prepared - ask for crispy fries. Nice selection of beer.

These off the main road restaurants are the best places to get great tasting food! It's not much to look at on the outside, but the interior is very clean and interesting to look at.

As a burger that has a title of "7th Best Burger in the U.S.", I expected a heavenly taste. However, the burger had an unbelievably dry patty, lettuce looked like it was a bit old, and the green chili didn't live up to expectations. I...More
