We were driving through Nephi UT about a month ago now, on our way back to WA State from AZ. It was time to eat, so we stopped for lunch. The special that day was hot turkey and what a wonderful surprise. It was real turkey, they had roasted for this special. It was wonderful and I enjoyed it so very much. Wish you were closer........

“Best steak salad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Great ambiance - love the overhead railway as did the children behind us.
We both had the steak salad and it was delicious. The portion was generous and the meat very tender. It must have been at least an 8oz steak before cooking. At $11.99 each this was the very best value meal we had on our trip round Utah.

“Avoid if possible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

OK, the trains should have been an attraction, but most of them weren't running. This restaurant is situated to take advantage of the Interstate traveller. The food is poor (clearly pre-made food reheated in their kitchen) and service was also poor. The two waitstaff were clearly in the weeds and didn't seem to have a division of which station was assigned to whom. Finally, for a place that's clearly geared to long-distance travelers, the restrooms were in horrible condition - messy, sticky, and out of soap and paper supplies. Won't be coming here again.

“Food just not that good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

They were sold out of their special by 6:00pm on a Sunday night. And I felt the food just wasn't that good!

My wife said the shrimp was as good as she had eaten anywhere. I had chicken fried steak that was good.
