Restaurant and bar. Free parking lot right next door. Good breakfast served quickly. Famous for their Bloody Mary’s that you can customize. Ordered mine loaded. This is a “locals” place.

We went around 8:30 Wednesday evening and had the dining section to ourselves. My husband got the plains burger and house made chips. I got the plains burger and upgraded to steak fries. Everything was delicious! Would definitely recommend. Good location, too!
