Driving from Seattle to MT, we decided to try someplace new! Worth the wait. Got to sit at the counter and watch our lunch being prepared. Great corn beef sandwich, awesome jalapeño bacon burger & got a chocolate shake for the road !

My husband and I were looking for a reasonable price lunch. I'm on a gluten free diet and I was skeptical about a diner having many options. I ordered the chef salad with dressing on the side.
