This is a cute, western-themed restaurant with a very nice staff. Four of us went for breakfast and had a range of items including a short stack of pancakes, a "pan san" (pancakes, eggs, and sausage or bacon) for a man, and lighter fare for the two cowgirls. Actually "lighter fare" is a bit hard to come by as the... More

The food was ok along with the service but nothing to write home about. We had coffee and the waitress never offered a refill even though it wasn't full of customers.

Not a very exciting place. Mediocre food. Mediocre service. Noisy. Cramped. Maybe a good place to stuff yourself and don't want to travel very far.

My husband and I went in on a Saturday morning around 11am. It was busy but we were accommodated quickly. The staff was friendly. We ordered pancake, egg, and meat combos. The food took about 20 minutes to come out, which was a little long but the server kept our coffee filled. The food was run of the mill, center... More

The food has always been good. Their bacon and their coffee are the best. Service is quick and friendly. Would recommend it for breakfast.

A small restaurant with a nice western atmosphere that my wife and I like to go for breakfast. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the food is well prepared and plentiful. I make it a point to go there whenever I have visitors from overseas because of the ambience that gives them a little taste of the old west.

The food is good, the plates are ample, and the staff is delightful. It's busy on the weekends so either go early or expect to wait for a few minutes. I like the fact that on the weekends they won't seat you until your entire party is there. That way a table isn't "dead" while several parties are waiting in... More
