Ambiance OK. Hamburger was good but not stellar, came with lots of onion, tomato, pickles. Fries were seasoned nicely and good. Turkey on sandwich was good but bread was dried out. Moderate prices, maybe slightly high for what you get.

Don't expect 5* and you wont be let down. The food we had was well prepared and presented. Staff were friendly and helpful. Place was clean although not pristine. All in all a good experience and I'd use again if in the area.

My wife and me stopped here for breakfast whilst on our honeymoon trip through California. The full breakfast was delicious, I particularly enjoyed the way the hash browns were cooked and the staff were very friendly. Great decor as well!

Walked along Main looking for dinner. Attracted by te signatures of cowboys and fimstars on the walls. Waitress was relaxed even though we were there at an inbetween time. Salad, steak, desserts, cold beer. All fine.Decent value

Had dinner here after driving from Vegas. All pretty good and not bad value, especially for a small town in the sticks.
