This was in our hotel, America's Best Value Inn and we had dinner and breakfast there. Both were excellent and the wait staff was most helpful.

Our last two visits, my Buffalo Burger smelled bad on the edge of the meat, as I peeled those off, I discovered the burger was raw, not rare, raw inside. The waittress was appalled. I certainly did not want to send it back! No charge...More

We ate here for breakfast on a weekday morning. We were seated immediately and the staff was friendly. The food was good and the prices were fair. The atmosphere is like an average casino coffee shop.

The food was okay and the service pretty standard. The small NY Strip I had was allegedly 28 day dry-aged Angus. If it were, I'd be shocked. It was okay, but way over-salted. Strongly recommend that one asks for "no salt added in cooking" unless...More
