“Boy were we WRONG”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

We were traveling through KS & decided to stop here for dinner. We expected the place would be small, quiet & have great homestyle food like fried chicken, mashed potatoes & etc. Upon arriving.. we saw just the opposite. TONS of people and terrible service. We got the buffet (bc of reviews we heard on here) thinking it would be homestyle food... little did we know it was a SEAFOOD buffet! Thinking it was an $8.99 dinner we decided to make due with it.. only to find out later it was $24!! INSANE price for terrible food. Plus the waitress wanted nothing to do with us after one of my friends asked for something different instead which the meal was untouched. Ridiculous. I would not recommend this place.

“Must stop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

This is where the locals and the regional truck drivers stop to eat. Not fancy, but extremely friendly and awesome home-cooked food. We ate lunch, and just hit the buffet. It's not a large selection, but THE PLACE for meat and potato fare. Yes, it had veggies, but who cares? This is western Kansas. We enjoyed our visit tremendously.

“ok place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The restaurant was not fancy but the food was good. The buffet/salad bar had a good selection. The staff had to be reminded to replemish some of the items that had run out on the buffet, but were friendly and liked to joke around.

Good breakfast at a good price. Nice staff. Lunch and dinner buffet looked better than the dinner I ordered off the menu.

“Keep Driving”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

Food was marginal at best. Typical Sysco food. Ashed potatoes were not real and the beef looked horrible on the buffet. I would keep driving if it was me...not worth the stop.
