Monte Christo sandwich, chicken fried steak, huge burgers....it's all good and all the portions are huge. Don't let the outside fool you, it's homemade food and a whole lot of it.

I did not order a salad. Their dressings are homemade and very tastey. I had the ranch for dipping of our jalapeño bottle Caps.

What are their prices in general? Is there a good selection of items on their children's menu?
