Went here with our 4 kids during vacation, they all loved their burger, chicken strips, and Mac & cheese. Husband and I shared the loaded fries which were amazing and the mama Mia burger. Portions were generous, their beers were interesting, and the value was good. Our waitress was very helpful and friendly.

I eat here when I am on the road and looking for a relatively healthy meal. You can order a salad either alone or with the addition of a hamburger patty, salmon filet, or chicken breast

This place is good! We had no idea it was an actual restaurant. We pulled in thinking we would just grab a quick burger but were pleasantly surprised it's not fast food. It was quick but could also be a good place to sit for awhile, have a drink and eat. The green chili burger was cooked perfectly. Also had... More

I couldn't believe that we would drive about an hour for a burger, but we did and it was worth it! Juicy, tender, moist and thick! I added bacon and mushrooms to mine- perfect.
