“Will go again”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We ate here in July after hearing rave reviews from friends and family. Service was pretty slow, but the food was what I felt was average, Not quite what I was expecting after all the hoopla, but "ok". The fry bread was out favorite part, but the ribs were nothing to write home about. We need to try it again to see if it was just an "off night".

“Locals favorite.”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

This is one of the restaurant we always try to stop at when we are in the Whitefish area. It is a favorite with the locals and always seems to be busy. It is not fancy but has good food, large servings and fair prices. As other reviewers have mentioned the fry bread with honey is always everyone's favorite. But the broasted chicken is a close second. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

“Good food!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

This place was full so we did have to wait quite a while to get our food, but when we got it it was really good. I'd never heard of "fry bread" & wondered what it was, & what it was, was delicious! The portions were very generous & we left stuffed! The waitress was very friendly as was the atmosphere. If we're ever in the area again, we'd definitely make a return trip to this restaurant. Prices were reasonable!

“If fry bread was the rating...it would be a 5.”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Service is what is average...never really great. The ribs were good and the portions fine. The best part is the fry bread and the honey butter served with it! The baked beans and slaw come in little plastic cups as the sides to many of the dishes. It has a good family atmosphere and pride themselves on their margaritas for their drink. If you are in the mood for BBQ, this is a popular place in the valley.
