We were heading south on I-5 bound for Portland, and I figured the Olympia area would be a good spot to stop for lunch. Thanks to a Tripadvisor search, I found this place for us, which involved a detour down US 101 and state route 8. Scenery was lovely and we arrived at the restaurant easily, thanks to our GPS. This is one of those gitchy roadside places that had the potential to be bad (e.g., license plates on the ceiling, hog sculpture outside), but we really enjoyed it. Service was efficient. We shared a sampler plate on our server's recommendation. Our chosen sides were baked beans and slaw; it also came with a homemade cornmeal muffin. We managed to salvage a few leftovers from the meat assortment to feed to our grateful dogs. Food was straightforward and homemade tasting - just what we were seeking. We could have benefitted from some extra BBQ sauce for dipping, but once we started eating, we didn't bother stopping to ask. We were so grateful not to be eating lunch at some faceless chain at the side of a freeway. Recommend it.
