Came here with some local friends at 8 AM on a Saturday. The biscuits were wildly praised by a lot of folks but I thought they were just okay biscuits. They were big. My wife had the same opinion about the biscuit, which she had with a scrambled egg. The hash browns were very good. The raspberry jam was very... More

I always enjoy the biscuit supreme. My other favorites are country fried steak breakfast or eggs, meat, and cinnamon roll. Always great for breakfast or lunch and offer steaks for dinner.

We love supporting independent places, both restaurants and motels. We were not disappointed with our lunch here. They make excellent green chile sauce. Yes, "chile", as in green chilies.

My friend had an open face hot turkey which he enjoyed. It's a busy restaurant but we were waited on quickly and had pleasant service. Saw many of... More

Nice interior. Comfortable and quiet. Mushroom swiss burger for me, chili burger for wife. Both disappointing. Average at best. Strongly suspect that breakfast is their strong suit. Pleasant, friendly staff.

I ate a good hamburger (the mile high hamburger) with french fries for 9$. Very kind staff, well decorated and nice place. Very comfortable for travellers since it's right next to the station.
