Popular, by it's reputation, and a long time in the area. Food appeared to be Tex-Mex, which we do do particularly like. Have not been there post fire damage and not my style.

A real scene from the old west - western saloon theme, good food + a live small scale rodeo. Adult bull riding and young kids riding sheep. Good family outing

As noted by another reviewer, the saloon burnt down around Thanksgiving. So no bull riding either.
