“Put this on your bucket list.”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

This is a place I would recommend to friends just for the experience of seeing all the trophy animals throughout the interior. The last time we went the food was okay but not great. There may have been a change in management since then. I can't speak for the food in the last year. But if you want a great burger, cross the street to the Windy Gap Saloon.

“Just a fun place to stop.”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

We stop here all the time on our way to Colorado. The food is decent but the atmosphere is great. All ages of people would enjoy Ole's.

“Really good midwestern food”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

If you're uncomfortable with hunting, this isn't the place for you. This guy from a (literally) no-stoplight town in the middle of nowhere went all around the world hunting and fishing, and his trophies and pictures adorn the walls.

As for the food, really good midwestern fare: fired chicken, steak, burgers, et cetera. Try to work it out so that I'm passing around a meal time whenever I'm cranking across I 80.
