“Utterly disappointed”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Stopped by on way from Rock Creek to Osoyoos. Had never tried this restaurant and did not look up on Trip Advisor ahead of time. The service was terrible, the server didn't seem to have a clue what he was doing and the food was a letdown. The soup was actually quite good but the garlic toast that went with it could have been used to pound stakes in the old railway. But worse still was the beef on a bun. It was in fact a couple of microwaved strips of beef on a hot dog bun - no au jus - no flavor and for the price - no lunch. We asked for some extra beef and the meal was gone for at least 15 minutes to get one more small strip of beef. Of course by then the fries were stone cold as was the rest of the bun. We will definitely pass on this one if we are that way again. We had thought that being part of the Husky gas station the food would be the usual Husky fare - but not this time.

“Sad”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

I was so disappointed when my family stopped in here for lunch!!! The cook was running around like a chicken with her head cut off, trying to do both jobs ( cooking & trying to be the waitress) She was cranky & miserable, we were under the impression we were putting her out. We felt very uncomfortable, the service was terrible, so was the food. The place was so dirty, very unclean. We will never be back!!! We also will be letting everyone we know, not to stop here!!!

“Very disappointed”
Reviewed 7 May 2013 via mobile

When driving home from western BC we have stopped here for years. We stopped for lunch and found most tables covered in dirty dishes. The rest if the place also felt grundgy. The waitress was completely overwhelmed and the place was only half full. She gave us menus and left. Some more people came in, she cleared a table for them and then took their order and brought them water and utensils. In the mean time we just sat there. Finally we got up and left. Heard people around us complain of the food so we were glad we didn't get to order.
