Wow, just conversation I was making. And for the door it gets left open many times a day and we ask many people to close the door when it's left open. Keeps the bugs out as we are in the mountains. Have a great day

Place is for sale and maybe current operators are burnt out but not real friendly. Food is good, lower marks for service and demeanor. Good burgers, good Huckleberry shakes. Not a place to go to but great place to stop if its on your way.
