Food was great, big portions. Service friendly. Price great! My dad drove a truck for 45 years and had stopped there several times to eat so when we were visiting he told us to stop by if it was still there and it was!

Good and reasonable breakfast and lunch selection. No charm here, just basic American food. Server was good, however it was a little slow coming from the kitchen.

We were on vacation and we arrived in Columbia Falls on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was very crowded and busy. We are a mixed race family and our son is African. The waitress told us "You can sit down if you can find...More
