“A locals place”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

This is a good spot to sit with the locals and have breakfast. There were a few cowhands there eating when we stopped. The breakfast food is good but nothing out of the ordinary.

Simple breakfasts cooked properly and served with a smile. Stop in and say Hi you will feel like part of the family, I did.

“Just another small town pit stop”
Reviewed 17 November 2011

The staff was friendly, but the food was just so-so. My husband had a prime rib dip, which is his usual, and he liked it well enough. It came with tasty sweet potato fries. I just had a cobb salad, which was pretty rough. Again, nothing special - I could have just bought a bag of iceberg lettuce, dumped it on my plate, added some eggs, ham and turkey and had the same thing. Oh, and don't forget the ONE random crouton and three slices of cucumber stuck together. It filled my belly, but didn't tantalize my taste buds.

“Friendly, but nothing special”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

This venue is one room with booths around the perimeter and random small tables in the open space. When we walked in, everyone in the place turned to look at us. :-) Sort of a small town thing, I guess. They had a busy night before we arrived around 7 and were out of several items, including most of the beer selection. The seemingly simple task of ordering a beer became a trial in finding out what they actually did have left in the small reefer. (Apparently their large unit was recently broken, so they were making do with a small one temporarily.)

I had the 'famous' chicken fried steak and while the gravy was good and the breading so-so, the pounded steak was pretty tough, despite the made to order aspect of it. The veggies were fresh and cooked nicely, the potatoes were just box stuff. My companion had half a grilled cheese and it was ok, but nothing special. Normal size bread, so a half is on the small side. Not a complaint, but be aware.

I suspect they are a little better earlier in the evening. Many places close at 7 pm on Sunday nights in Wickenburg.
