The reason we went there was for the Elk Tacos. Had four Elk Tacos, one order of fries and two small shakes. More than enough for two people and loved the Elk Tacos. (The frys and shakes were wonderful too)

We came here for dinner after a day of rafting! The milkshakes were AMAZING and the food was great too! The owners son waited on us and he was very very sweet and took great care of us!

Whether you want a delicious hamburger, home brewed huckleberry iced tea, or unique elk tacos, this place has it all! And the service was friendly and helpful as well. Wish we could have tried the delicious looking milkshakes! Next time.

Went here for dinner with a good size group after a day of rafting. The food was very good and good size portions. I had a salmon salad that was great. Everyone enjoyed their food and drinks. The service was quick and friendly. Great place.

Great little stop in Riggins for excellent fresh food and excellent service. We enjoyed freshly made tortilla chips, home made salsa and the best elk tacos EVER! I would not hesitate to recommend this little hidden gem in Riggins Idaho!

We have had some hit or misses here but from our understanding it might have been the ownership. We stopped in this past weekend and it was great, great food. I opted for the elk tacos which were outstanding and the fresh, daily made salsa...More
