Enjoyed a tasty breakfast of heurvos rancheros with a side of crispy hash browns. Delicious crispy tortillas topped with perfectly medium over easy eggs and a delicious ranchero sauce. Fun decor with the expected cowboy theme and fast and friendly service. Will definitely return to...More

Stopped here while traveling through. Always on the lookout for a small town diner for breakfast. This one was terrific. Big menu, very reasonable prices. Good was great and so was the service.

Fairly typical american cafe style food that is well cooked, well prepared and generously proportioned. Bar atmosphere, some slots make it a slightly different casual dining experience.

It's ok, however just down the street they have chicken fried steak for 5.99 and this restaurant is pricey, and I would like to see better prices and I would go back food is not bad .

My wife and I had a very basic eggs, toast, and bacon breakfast, and it was as good as any we've had anywhere in the world. Staff was great, especially the energetic girl with the blonde ponytail.

Great place to eat in Gardnerville. The atmosphere is great. I've had everything practically on the menu and it's all good. Tri-tip sandwich is my favorite!

Love the Cinnamon rolls, but everything I've tried is good. Burgers for lunch are very nice also. Must eat here if in Minden/Gardnerville.
