Excellent food and people-watching. Famous tot-chos (tater tot nachos) are excellent and the enormous Rocky Mountain Rescue dessert is EPIC! Fried chicken, hot legs, mac & cheese, burgers, monte cristo- all excellent.

Let us start here: if you are a clean freak, don't step foot in this place. It needs a good floor to ceiling cleaning. However,if you can overlook gritty floors, sticky tables, you can expect some fantastic food. Amazing sandwiches and interesting menu. With a...More

GoodForYou01- I am sorry that the quality of our food did not meet and exceed your expectations. We bread our fish in-house with breading we made and buy our burgers from the local butcher shop. We have always prided ourselves on being able to offer...More
