They have a very family friendly atmosphere and menu. The cow pie biscuits and gravy are fabulous. Lunch we had the yak chuck wagon. Unique and we really liked it. The property is cool with lots of rusty steel wheeled tractors.

Nothing special, service is earnest but slow, food is barely okay. My wife had a BLT and it was not even okay...skimpy but a cup of baked potato soup was good. I had a chicken bacon salad that was drowned in dressing.

Service was exceeding slow and wait for almost 10min without acknowledgement. I ordered the Buffalo wings and grilled ham and cheese sandwich. I was happy to see the wings not dripping in sauce! Bit into the wing and the centre was still frozen!! Ham and...More

This eating establishment is very good if you like comfort food. I am currently staying in Elma on business and I have eaten here twice. They are quick and convenient. I did like the food and they have quite the selection.
