For a restaurant which claims the "Best Burgers in Town", I guess I was expecting a bit better. The food itself actually wasn't bad but overall pricey ($11 for onion rings). The service however was terrible. We started with a guy who seemed fairly new and he was replaced at some point by Ashley. She spaced out *three* times while... More

The service was good and efficient. The food was good but not spectacular. I would return when I pass through Lone Pine.

Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The portions are embarrassingly huge, so consider sharing appetizers, etc. . Really good food, very friendly service.

Had breakfast here, waffles was great and the bacon was cooked perfectly, stopped here for a quick bite on our way home and their lunch did not disappoint either. Cozy place with all the photos of western actors and films that were shot in the area. Reliable diner.

They open at 7 am and serve a variety of high calorie breakfast options. The breakfast meats and taters were prepared in the old time diner tradition.

The service was rather slow and the food pretty average. I wouldn't rush back. The guy in front of me waiting to pay obviously felt the same way based on his attitude to the cashier. I didn't see any tips being left!

On our way home, we were hungry and stopped in for breakfast. Walls are covered with western pictures of movie stars and other memorabilia. I had the corned beef hash with country pots and biscuit. Country potatoes had green peppers, onions and mushrooms. The potatoes were sliced longwise. They were good. The biscuit was a little to dense. Would have... More

The restaurant walls are covered in western memorabilia. We had breakfast here which are large portions but lacked some condiments. The omelett ($11) was served very bland and tasteless.
