We chose this restaurant after reading reviews here. Needs a sense of adventure to stop and eat here The signs for buffalo burgers drew us in, even though there were no cars in front. The cook and server, all in one, is quite a character....More

This place has great character, the owner(?) is friendly. Had the buffalo burger and it was yummy.... but everything on the menu was very pricey. Not many other options around to eat after 6pm so we came here, but I'm glad we did.

The food here is very good. The place has character and it is clean. The price is a bit on the high side and order to table time is slow. But, everything we had was worth the wait.

Excellent food. My 7 & 12 year old boys tried buffalo burgers for the first time and loved them! Shocking since they are picky eaters. I had the ribeye dinner. The owner is quite entertaining.

Service was slow even though we were the only ones there. Prices were very high for lunch items, and the food was only so-so. Would not go back.

Looks like a great find but are there any vegetarian or fish options? We have a few meat eaters and a few vegetarians in our family.

Not really a spot for vegetarians particularly, but I am sure a good salad and some veggies can be had.
