I love getting a grilled cheese with grilled onions and mushrooms. Go next door to the diner for a bigger beer selection in their bar. Every meal is hot and it's very typical diner food. Their prices are very reasonable and they have a great...More

Great place for lunch. Not a place to have a private conversation, but the food is amazing and the menu has something for everyone. Definitely order fries and get the homemade ranch to go with them.

Small place that has cold beer and good burgers. Nothing fancy. Worth stopping at. Bar stools were leaned up on bar, I thought they were saved for someone - they weren't.

They have a great green chili burger and are right next door to the golden light cantina - which has live music on the weekends and cheap beer.
