Stopped for lunch and they were slammed. BE patient, it’s worth the wait. Plow Boy sandwich is great and Tuna melt is really good Add onion rings. You’ll be happy when you leave. Enjoy.

Very conveniently located for travelers on I-5. The food was great, the staff was friendly, and the service was surprisingly fast. So much better than "fast food" in every way! We will stop here again if we're in the area.

If you are hungry and thirsty, try BBQ BABY BACK RIBS as they are excellent. Coleslaw was wonderful.

Terrific steaks and ribs, but breakfast is good, too.Booths for four, plus a large room for gatherings, and a full bar. During the VARA British Extravaganza (racing) each spring, 20 of us gather for a great pre-event evening. it always goes off without a hitch.
