Stopped by recently for breakfast. If you like country cooking you will like OST. Pancakes are very large so you will be completely satisfied with a short stack. Good service, and there cleaning routine with Covid seemed good.

Try the John Wayne room for a, delicious breakfast. The Migas were freshly cooked and delicious. Friendly staff and wsit staff. Easy to park your motorcycle right out front. Be sure to get there early because the lines are longer after 8:40 a.m.
