I've eaten at this restaurant for 30 years and the food and service has declined drastically over the past few years. Tonight we ate there and we will never return. Service was horrible and food wasn't very good. Waiter didn't get 2 of the orders right, but we still had to pay full price even though we pointed out that the orders were wrong. The waiter argued that we got what we ordered. Seriously? We don't know what we ordered? Then charged for the salad bar even though it was included in the meal. The salad bar was pathetic. Most of the containers were missing. We were told they were replacing them, so wait a few minutes. Well, the containers were finally replaced, but the salad bowl was still nearly empty and didn't look very good. We got tired of waiting, so managed to pick out some of it to make a salad. After we got our plates, they replaced the salad bowl. The third order (finger steaks) were over done, almost burnt. At the cash register, we again complained and were told since we ate the meals we had to pay for the order we received. While we were eating, two other orders were messed up. A plate was left at the pick up station so long that it had to be replaced. The couple next to us were disgusted because their order was wrong and the so-called hot tea was cold. The waitress offered to "top it off" with hot water. The lady requested a fresh cup of HOT water. So disappointed because now we will have to drive 45 minutes for dinner out. I guess there is no such thing as a good diner anymore.

This place is so good. I usually get the country fried steak and am never disappointed. Great place!

This is one place that we always try to stop for breakfast. The Basque bread is to die for and the food has always been good.

This is a nice option because the town does not have many eateries. However, I have yet to eat something I really like here..

This is a great little family-owned restaurant with home-style cooking! It's a great place to stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner if you're traveling through southern Idaho on I-84. It's conveniently located in a small farming community and the food is really good!
