We enjoyed bison burger and green chile burgers. Mixed fries and fried pickles were nice sides. Good service and beer choices.

Best burgers ever, served with vegs on the side, and cups of housemade ketchup and chile mayo. Way too big for most of us, so we have to forgo fries and dessert. But whatever you do, don't miss their excellent sangria, served perfectly. Friendly wait...More

The green chili burger and Nutty Quinoa salad are the best. Be sure to order the fried green beans and sweet potato fries. The dipping sauces make the entire meal. They even have salted Carmel ice cream for desert!!
