My wife and I went there for dinner. My caribou burger was good, but her chicken lettuce wrap was pretty bad. The black box cab and chardonnay were pretty bad too. Would not go back.

Good food with a few interesting twists. The burgers range from ELK, Buffalo, Caribou and just plain old beef. Pay attention to the appetizers there are a few in there that will surprise you.

Pretty good food. Have all sorts of different meats and a very large menu. Friendly staff and decent food. Very expensive prices for a burger joint so be prepared to drop some bucks.

We go to buckets often. Burger cooked per request, even if request is medium rare. The salad with the imitation crab and their special noodles with Cesar dressing, delightful and filling.

Their wings are the best around. Their bucket burger will fill you up. And their ceaser salad is the best around!

We've tried this place a couple of time while on the road passing through. Not worth it - passable if you're starving, but honestly I'd rather eat at Taco Bell. Pretty bad.

Great breakfast, fast friendly service. We have driven by this place many times and finally decided to eat there. I had a breakfast platter, I think it was the capt nick, or something like that.
