Our group ate breakfast every morning before our daily motorcycle ride of the day. Wide choice of breakfast and it was served very fast. It was good and of enough quantity to meet your needs.

We stopped on for a Hamburger and Fries. The hamburger was good but the fries were cooked to perfection. Our waitress was also very friendly and efficient. I would recommend you visit there if in Custer.
