By the name I thought this would be a fast food restaurant, but it was more of a cafe with a lot of ice cream deserts. The food had a home made style and taste. Prices were reasonable and service good. I had the Chicken...More

Quaint little restaraunt, tacos were freshly made - shell and all. Excellent food and service. The owner was there to take our order and deliver the food. Everyone was very friendly. The strawberry shake was worth coming back for!

Burgers, Fires and Shakes are good, the attraction for me is it's decades-long patronage by Philmont staff members and campers. The ambiance and employee - customer interaction is unique.

I had fish and chips and it was pretty typical. The others that I was with really enjoyed the tacos, so if I ate there again, I would choose that. It seems to be what they are known for.

On first view it looks pretty beat up but then you notice the amount of cars parked outside. Has the feel of a hole-in- the- wall burger joint. Cash only!!! Service is fast and friendly. Ice Cream is fantastic.
