What a joint! This gem is stuffed with all kinds of collectibles about bears! Stopped by for breakfast and had 8oz Steak and eggs for $5.99! (limited time special) The latter was served with hash browns and toast. My guest had eggs and bacon with a side of Belgian waffles. We couldn't find anything wrong with all the food. Usually Belgian waffles are hits and misses. That one was on target! Not too sweet and tasty. The food is only as good as the service. And the latter was exceptional. No wonder all the locals go there. Ample parking is available. Wish I had this restaurant in my neighborhood!

Stopped here on a return trip from Vegas, and loved it. Had a special of 2 pork cops (and I mean BIG pork chops, and boneless, too), 2 eggs, a large portion of hash browns, and a homemade biscuit that was big enough to be a meal by itself, and all of this was under $10.00. Food was cooked and served quickly, and everything was delicious. I will definite stop here again when I am passing through this area!

You'll like the portion size. The quality is above average and the price is reasonable. This a "down home" style of dining, and well worth a visit.

The service is just great; sometime when you walk in, someone is waiting to show you to a table and you don't even slow down on your way to a table. The waitresses are knowledgeable about the menu and very friendly and competent. The steak and egg special for $5.95 is so much better steak than you would expect for the price!
