We stopped here because we were looking for the Dam but could not find it. They were very friendly and polite. They pointed us in the right direction with a smile on thier faces and no pressure to purchase anything. It was very pleasant!

You can get a beer, gas up, get some snacks and a t-shirt, but while this is probably one of the nicest gas stations I've been to, I wouldn't call it a restaurant. Basically, this is mostly the equivalent of Punkin Center Motorcycle Resort, which...More
