We love eating the burgers and prime rib dip. The fries are really delicious. We get very good service every time. This is a great place to get a good steak. We go there often. Breakfast is really good too.

Are you driving on the I90 and you are looking for a nice lunch, I can recommend the ahi tuna salad. Well cooked tuna and nice green salad with a good crunch in it.
