Driving through town decided to try this place. First impression not great. Clientele at bar looked a little sketchy. But staff was friendly enough. Minors allowed in the back. Sat at the counter and watched our lunch being made. Decent food, large portions, VERY reasonable....More

We stopped in for a soda as we were half hour early to an appointment and say there for OVER ten minutes without a word. No service no service no hello. There was two customers there. We finally walked out. Will NOT return!
