“A bowling alley?”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Good food, friendly service and Cheap! The places was jamming with bowlers in the back and diners in the front. The specials were all really good and reasonably priced. Next time, I'd probably skip the chocolate torte with bacon - a little too dense.

“Surprisingly great food at great prices!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We had fish fry and it was SO good! We didn't expect much for the price, and were really pleasantly surprised. The place is nice and clean, and the waitperson we had was very friendly and nice. Highly recommend this place. We'll be back!

“Breakfast's or Salad your favorites...this is the place!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

I am a breakfast hound and always searching for another super breakfast. Elsie's veggie omelette with two cheeses is really very tasty, biscuits and gravy also good, lot's of great choices.My super-duper favorite salad when I eat meat, is their Steak Cobb Salad with some Blue Cheese and also some Sweet Honey Jualapeno (a orange semi-clear color dressing) on the side and mix them together....TOTAL YUM! A small piece of steak very tender done exactly the way you like it sliced in one corner, fresh tasty avacado slices in another corner, sliced eggs in another corner, tomatoes in the last corner and real bacon bits sprinkled in the middle. The Sedona Salad another winner, want to try their shrimp safood salad next and maybe get some of my friends to eat and bowl; it's a time gone by bowling alley and it looks really fun!!!!!

“Food was surprisingly great!”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

I wasn't expecting much when I ordered my Sedona salad since we were eating at a bowling alley. I was so surprised! My salad was an amazing portion of chicken, avacado, black beans, and lettuce. My three friends also commented on how they were very pleased with their selections. Great bloody mary's too :)
