Very good food served quickly. Very clean dining area and toilets. We were happy to have found the restaurant while on a long trip. Prices were a bit expensive AND I suspect they need to be.

Burgers are excellent. Fries are plenty. Onion ring are best! The ice cream cones are an absolute must. A nice grassy quiet seating area in the back. Worth a stop every trip through. Cash only.

We had an early lunch here, then spent the afternoon hiking and swimming and soaking at hot springs, then stopped for ice creams late in the day. Everything was good, the staff were friendly, the price was fair, and the bathrooms were clean too! I...More

They may specialize in ice cream, but they also make an awesome cheeseburger. Everything they have, ice cream, burgers, hot dogs and fries are served up by friendly people at honest prices. They also have an out door dining area with a real lawn and...More
