Such a good surprise in the desert. Stayed at the holiday inn which was great and ate here for dinner. So simple and easy and the food was awesome. Craft beer selection washed down great ribs and burgers.

Excellent choices and delicious food. Spicy sausage is HOT. Orders come up fast so there is a lot of changeover even when busy. As other reviewers mentioned, the interior eating space does have some flies, but they were quite tolerable. Plenty of food for the...More
