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 recommended to this restaurant by another local place. We were told the "taco Tuesdays" are... More

This is a good restaurant for any age group, couples, family, singles. We really like the hamburgers. They are cooked to order, and the french fries a crispy and good. We stop here as often as we can.

Lunch at the Hitching Post is filling and cheap. I had three tacos. Two would have been ample, still I ate them all up as they were yummy. This definitely isn't a wild social scene on a week day in October, but you might be able to play a hand at Bridge with some of the regulars

If you arrive in town after 8 there are few good places to eat. The Hitching post is a little outside of town but not that far. The food here is good and the portions are large.

This was very convenient for us after a long day driving. This is a grill bar / sports bar and serves a straight forward menu. Burgers, chicken etc. It had some good beers on tap. This is a place that clearly has lots of local families dropping in and it makes for a really pleasant atmosphere.

We enjoy local color and eating where the locals eat. This is not a place you'd immediately stop with the kids and grandma in the car. It doesn't have much curb appeal. BUT, if you did stop, you'd love the food.

Thank Don C
