Great food, very cool location, "back in the day" vibe. Split the dinner, there's just too much for one person. Highly recommended.

Sometimes when travelling you get a hankering for home cooking. On the way back from our Hwy 30 sightseeing we were taken in by the promise of chicken 'n dumplings. The dumplings were gigantic- enough for two servings. The gravy was decent, but the chicken...More
