All the meals we had at the outpost were good. The bisquits and gravy were good, omelets, good, scrambles, good. I think the star of the morning meal was the funny face pancakes for the kids!

Food was very good. I had a French Dip loaded with tender flavorful meat. My dining partner enjoyed her cheese burger, rating it amongst one of the best she's had. Our server was fun and friendly.

We had a great breakfast experience, it was perfect for 2 families traveling together. The food was hot and out in a flash, drinks filled and a fun waitress. The service was really great. Would stop again.
