Stopped on a Sunday afternoon. The Philly cheese steak was phenomenal according to my girlfriend. I had the circle e burger. Onions we're great and cooked way I wanted. The chef salad was great too.

stopped in for breakfast because the lodge we were staying at served a cruddy one. Thoughts this would be a better choice. Waitress and coffee were great, food was blah (pancakes and omelette)

This place is for the local, the lazy or the lost. I was there yesterday with friends and its a nothing special place to grab a bite. The food was ok and the atmosphere is an old building in need of updating.
