Kitschy little place in practically the middle of nowhere, with excellent food. The waitress, despite being the only one with a dining room full of people, was very friendly and took the time to explain the menu, give recommendations, and answer questions. The food was...More

Went for lunch with my family. It was a busy day and the place was hopping. That being said, the wait for our order to be taken and for the food to come was too long. Food was good when it did arrive.

Never ate in but I stop by on my way home from work and pick up Pasties for dinner often. They are precooked and heat up in the over in 20 minutes. They make both beef and chicken and both are recommended.

As stated previously, Hell consists of 3 buildings. There is a park-like area with some seating overlooking the river. Don't really know why you would want to take a dog to Hell.
