We've eaten here several times and our experiences have been similar. The food is pretty good, though quite expensive (but you have to expect that in Death Valley). The service is terrible, not so much because the employees are incompetent, but because there aren't enough of them. Granted, this time we were there during Thanksgiving weekend, so the place was packed. But we arrived around 2 pm -- not exactly at rush hour, and in fact we were too late to order off the regular menu, had to get bar food instead. (Incidentally, we looked at the regular menu posted on the door, and they seem to have reduced it -- not as many good choices.) There was only one clean table, half a dozen dirty ones, and the rest were full. The waitress looked like she was about to collapse from exhaustion, but she was polite and friendly to us. After we finally ate, it took another eon to pay the bill. Each time we come here, I think -- let's not eat here again. But it's very convenient for us, coming up from Ridgecrest, so we keep coming. Maybe someday they'll hire some more staff.
