It's a bar with big goblet glasses of beer. That is all. The bartender was super nice, but the other bar back (female) was less than friendly.

This is a great little place. You can sit outside or inside. They have a 'special" of the day and appetizers that are great. The restaurant was clean and the decor was really nice. It was easy to find, right off the highway.

Great dinner! Good selection. Was told to try the chicken fried steak and crazy chicken. Both were on the money! The crazy chicken is boneless chicken wings wrapped around a cheese stuffed jalapeño and then all are wrapped with bacon and fried. Wow!! Great staff....More
