We had taco pizza and chicken fajita pizza. Both were good, but the price seemed pretty high for pizza. $42 for 2 large pizzas to go.

We made a mid week ride through North Dakota already knowing a little about this eating spot. Stopped in just after noon to a very warm welcome from the serving staff. Menu was full of a variety of items along with the regular lunch specials. We both chose something traditional and received large portions of each. Food quality was excellent,... More
