“great food, good prices but terrible service”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

if you do not mind waiting 45 minutes like in some fancy establishment this place may be all right. Many food choices, and the prices are very reasonable. I did have a huge disappointment with the place, because we were a big group (about 20), and the restaurant managers first agreed to host us for dinner but later changed their mind and cancel on us last minute for no reason... very rude and left us hanging... could not get last minute reservation in no other place nearby... could not travel without cars, so had to take pizza to go instead.... still quite angry

“Excellent meals”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

This restaurant is a little off the beaten path however the meals, in particular the $7.99 steak was the best deal in Vegas. The service was very good and worthy of a good tip.
I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

“Great place.”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

The food is excellent and for the price you get more than you need. The service is perfect. Good beer and root beer, made on site. The location is not so hot but the restaurant is worth it.

“Old-fashioned restaurant , HUGE portions and good service”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Variety : very good, a very wide menu
Service : Efficient, accurate and friendly.
Food quality : we ordered breakfast and everything was tasty and fresh. My only grouse is that the sausage with the breakfast was way too salty, massive sodium overload. The coffee was really thin and watery.
Price ; Fantastic, large amount of food for a reasonable price.
Ambience : comfortable booth seats, good for a bunch of friends to hang out.
