Stop here while visiting relatives in the area. They have a very diverse menu with lots of yummy choices. We ordered the Fried Chicken and I must say it was some of the best Friend Chicken we have had in a long time. Meal also comes with a crisp cold Salad and, a Side of your choice along with Garlic...

You definitely feel like you step into the past going to this place. They have a very good selection of meats with lots of comfort food type sides. Fast friendly service

Had dinner at Spunky Steer with friends the other night. We drove in from the desert and didn't think the experience was worth the drive. The steak was inexpensive, but a little tough and tasteless. very busy, loud place with no atmosphere. Won't return

Tony's is a local place we like to go to when we don't feel like cooking and we don't want to fight traffic to go anywhere. My husband LOVES the bacon wrapped Filet Minions and I like the New York Strip. They come out on metal platters sizzling from the grill. It has a homey atmosphere and the service is... More

I don't necessarily mind eating a cheap steak, as long as I'm not paying steakhouse prices for it. While the service was friendly and attentive, the facilities clean, the ribeye steak I had was just awful. It was thin and gristly, over seasoned, and just sad. My husband, on the other hand, ordered a rack of ribs that were pretty... More

This restaurant is the same as it was the day it opened. The menu has lots of items and the portions are always large and the food is O K, but nothing exciting. If what you want is a hamburger, salad or big sandwich then its O K The food is certainly not for anyone trying to watch their weight.... More
