  • Excellent tri tip sandwich. Wanted onion rings, but was told the fryers closed at 3. The restaurant was closed and I couldn't find hours I f operation of it online so we just had our trip tip sandwich which was very good. Parking is crazy but if your willing to walk a little it's not bad.
  • I've been coming here since the 80s absolutely love it. Great place to come on the weekends and hang out eat some tri-tip sandwiches and listen to fans. I've eaten in the restaurant a couple of times in the food there is good as well.
  • A fun historic place to visit. The drinks are excellently priced. We did not eat a meal there but everybody else we saw and talked to loved the food
  • Wow. We ABSOLUTELY LOVED everything about this place... AMAZING FOOD, AMAZING SERVICE... I tried Venison for the first time, waiter suggestion with their GREEN CHILE Chili which is OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD DELICIOUS! 💖💖💖
  • This is a fun historical landmark, a small detour for the local Gem you will find... and the path to access it, is a beautiful drive. We enjoyed an excellent lunch here with awesome service.
