Family wanted a quick bite on the way to the mountains. This was good quality food for a fun stop. Dine outside or in. I loved the chef salad.

Great hot dogs. I have been going there for a long time. Buster (the owner) was my wife's bus driver. He has done a great job with the food and keeping a step back in time restaurant.
