Real Saloons were not fancy, so step back in time to just some basic handmade food (loved every bite!) and some great sasparilla!

We had to stop for a beer in this special Saloon that dates back to the 1800s. Great bar service and you can tell if the walls could talk, they would have wild stories!

The little one's enjoyed the pool table while the adults enjoyed the best Bloody Mary ! Worth a visit and right next to the rail road museum!

Was lucky that The RC Saloon was open late. What a fun experience. Was there alone but no one seemed to care. Service was friendly, food was cheap and cheery, and the ambiance was loaded with atmosphere.

Great local bands, fun customers but the bar service was terrible. The bartenders catered to people that appeared to be their regular customers and nobody else could get service.
