Great little stop in Riggins for excellent fresh food and excellent service. We enjoyed freshly made tortilla chips, home made salsa and the best elk tacos EVER! I would not hesitate to recommend this little hidden gem in Riggins Idaho!

Not only is the food tasty and original, the milkshakes amazing, the indoor/outdoor atmosphere relaxing, but the people are some of the most genuine and friendly you will meet. If you are passing through the area, be certain to stop. Perfect parking for bikes.

Happened upon this family run business, driving thru. Best elk tacos ever!!! Had to even buy some of the homemade salsa to take home. Couldn't even eat all of my food- very large portions. My husband's burger was delicious too. Excellent quality.
