was staying across the street at the Salida Inn and walked over for a bite to eat after we checked in. The fried pickles are to die for- even the next day.....there were so many we had left overs. I can't remember the name of the ridiculously large burger my husband had, 2 patties, bacon, cheese.......anyway- we are from Chicago... More

Super friendly staff, greeted right away, offered free peanuts to take to our table. We decided to sit at the bar so we could watch football and hockey, ordered the chicken wings. Amazing! Smoked on the property and crispy and juicy. Definitely a must stop!!

We stopped by this place before we did the aerial course up the road. It's has a fun atmosphere and they ask you what game on T.V you want to be seated next to. We ordered and got our food in under 30 minutes. My husband had an awesome bacon and guacamole burger with onion rings and I had a... More

We had the smoked wings, and some excellent chowder for a quick bite, but the food being served around us looked wonderful. Will definitely eat there again.

We enjoyed both of the meals we had here. We had burgers the first time and sandwiches the second time. People were friendly and the good was good.

I walked out shivering. 60 outside and only 50 inside. Heat was not on. Staff in kitchen trying to stay warm. That's just cheap. Food ok kind of expensive for what you get.

I usually don't respond to most reviews, but this I have to. This person already gave us a bad review in 2012. They said "three strikes and your out". Is this the forth strike or just trying to bash us again. For as this review the heat WAS on and all heaters were set to 70 degrees. I'm not cheap... More

We hit this place with a large group of our friends on a fall scenic trip to Salida. Looked like a really cool place that we wanted to try. However I have to say that the food was pretty decent but really Had some quality and completeness challenges. For example I ordered a Philly cheesesteak sandwiches and it came without... More

I like to eat once in a while for lunch. Their wings are very good. The owner smokes his own meat. The burgers are great and fries fresh.

Our food was yummy and timely. We really wanted them to have a bigger dessert menu. Maybe Ice Cream.

Good sports bar, food was good. It was Saturday night and very crowded so the food took some time, but our food came out hot and tasted good.
