Great wings, burgers, steak tacos and Saturday specials. One night we waited a long time for our food but they took our entrees off the bill in return. Great atmosphere.

Have gone there in the past, the food is always good, the staff very friendly, beer is cold. They have lots of room for trucks/trailers, gas on site and the A-D trail runs through their property. Overall an excellent spot.
