Bill's Hitching Post has some of the best burgers that you will find. Try the western burger with fries is you're really hungry. Chances are you won't be able to finish it! Great onion rings cooked nice and crispy. Good selection of draft beer, also....More

We unsuccessfully tried to eat here twice but the restaurant hadn't opened when we were there. Third time's a charm because we had a really good lunch. Their burgers are really big and so tasty! Their fries are wonderful, too. Very friendly people. We were...More
