We have been here several times as we live here. Great specials and service. We have been here as a couple and with family on many occasions. The Speedway is a little jewel in our town and we love it.

Stopped in for lunch and had the 1/2 rack of ribs for $7.29. Excellent value and good food. I only gave it 3 stars as the facilities were nothing special, but the food is a solid 4 Stars!
