We've driven by a number of times, and the tables are always full. So, I was looking forward to a good burger and shake. What I got was a tasteless burger (pre-packaged/not 100% beef), ok fries, and an ok shake, ALL overpriced! Would I return?...More

The green chile cheeseburger is the best. The fries were tasty and the chocolate malt yummy. It's a walk to the restroom. There was great service.

Nice place to stop for lunch! We had a variety of items: elk burger, cheeseburger, fish, and chicken baskets. All was very good! We come every time we come through South Fork. Don't forget to grab a shake or malt before leaving!

If you are looking for quality fast food, stop here! When traveling through S. Fork, we try to time a lunch stop or an ice cream snack stop here. We have never been disappointed during the seasonal time when they are open. The last time...More
