BEST food and service!!!

A local treasure and special treat for travelers!

A huge varied menu, delightful local ambiance, and a waitress who really enjoy her job, remembered all of your orders without writing them down, and was genuinely honest when you had questions. A varied home-cooking style salad bar! Sports games were shown on TV and other options to enjoy in this bar area. Definitely worth stopping for gas and a mean here!

Fast, friendly service over the lunch hour. The salad bar was a nice benefit to the special. Very reasonably priced items with generous portions. I could barely finish the Chili cheese fries and my wife’s taco salad was huge. The hot roast beef is delicious. Glad I came back.

Delilcious Sandwich

March 16, 2022

The brisket sandwich lunch special was spot on, from the toasted Texas toast to the tender, juicy smoked brisket.. A slice of cheddar, a slice of Monterey Jack, and slices of bacon rounded off this lovely sandwich served with fresh, crispy crinkle fries.
