This place is like family assuming you like your family. Food and service were fine, if somewhat limited. probably the best restaurant for 100 miles.

“Worth the stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Granted, your options are limited along US-50 in this area, or visiting Great Basin National Park. However, the food was good (deserts were better) and service was quality. As we were camping at Great Basin, and didn't like the options in Baker, this was a pleasant surprise. Decent convenience story as well.

Make your way past skanky smelly bar slot machine area to entrance of pleasant well ventalated restaurant and you will find excellent service and reasonably well prepared food at a good value.

“In the middle of nowhere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2011

It is tle place (only place?) to stay when visiting Great Basin National Park. Very simple but clean and charming. A taste of adventure. Restaurant , market and fuel station too. We liked it.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2011

I visited this restaurant for a group dinner. The theme was Mexican, and it was really good. Even though this place is in the middle of nowhere, with no competition, the food and service is great. Stop in when you are in the Great Basin National Park region. An added plus is definitely the setting -- Great Basin National Park is fantastic.
