Small towns are easy to eat in as the locals know where to go. I like the food at Me-N-Lou's and have been coming here for years. The place has been updated since my last visit, and it looks really nice. The food hasn't changed, since good stuff and plenty of it. There aren't many places on the road out... More

The waitresses were friendly. I had the taco salad and my partner had the chicken fried steak. Both were very good. Large servings. The scones and honey were excellent.

I had the Eggs and Biscuits. The biscuits were very tasty. Buttery flavor and flaky. The gravy was quite flavorful and delicious. The eggs were prepared well. My wife had the salad bar which was less than expected but also had hash browns which she loved. We'd definitely go back but avoid the salad bar.

We didn't know what to expect, we just saw it on the side of the road and decided to stop in. The food was great! The burger was nothing short if amazing. We could tell it was hand made, never frozen with freshly baked bacon. We recommend the fish and chips too. You're given an option of a scone or... More

Right off the 15. Quaint and friendly. Food came quickly and was delicious. The biscuits and gravy had a great peppery flavor, eggs fresh and cooked perfectly to my liking. They even made a fresh pot of coffee because the other was sitting for a while. My husband shared his hash browns...yummm

Nice country style restaurant that offers a large homemade menu. We ordered breakfast and it was delicious!! Their omelettes, bacon and hash browns were great. They offer delivery also. Worth the stop!

Great food, friendly & efficient staff. I had their Sunday rib special, which was fall off the bone delicious! Resturant decor dark & really could use some updating. Needs to be brightened up to match the sunny staff's disposition! The "scones", which I would describe more like Indian fry bread, are amazing!!! I told my husband its probably a good... More

The homemade fresh chilli (all you can eat) was great topped off with a salad and hot scone made to order with honey. All this comes with the soup and salad combo. The raspberry honey was fantastic. If you like hot hamburger sandwich you better come with a big appetite.

Stopped for breakfast on a cold foggy day. Homey decor, friendly service. Eggs and bacon with hashbrowns were average, but hit the spot

This was a great find on our way to Yellowstone. Had been owned and opperated by the same family for 13 years. I was suprised that it is not yet on tripadvisor as it is a true gem.
