Every time I eat here (not really by choice… But by invitation) I get sick! The food is never any good and the temperatures are off.

Stopping at the adjacent Best Western, we were directed to Hoss's Steakhouse by the staff.

Hoss's has NEVER let us down! Salad bar is always clean and seemingly fresh. Steak is always a decent quality. Never ever had bad tips here. The ice cream is my favorite ice cream. I cannot say enough great stuff about Hoss's. Waitresses are always pleasant and helpful. IMHO Hoss's does it right.

Good salad bar. Steak good but not excellent. Always good soup. Plenty of dining space. Room for bus traffic.

The food was good. However, no spices and pretty much basic. But, they have no alcohol at all... That was rather disappointing, especially for us, after a long day at work...
