Excellent small sirloin steak cooked to perfection with baked potato that had seasoning rubbed on the skin. Grilled onions and mushrooms, fresh fruit. Great meals, great service, cold and tasty brews and drinks. Person with me had a spinach salad with 3 kinds of fresh berries, which was also delicious. Restaurant is just a few blocks west of the Speedway, easy access. Very reasonably priced for quality food.

We enjoyed our meal here after the race during the Grand Prix. We were very happy with the quality and prices of our food. Our server was very nice and our food arrived quickly!

A short drive from the Wingate Hotel, we ate here on our way downtown for a concert. We had the tenderloin sandwiches. My husband had the grilled and I had the country fried. The pork was tender and delicious. The fried had a little more breading than I like, but it was tasty. The service was prompt and the servers were friendly. The food delivered to the adjacent tables looked good. Menu has something for everyone. We'll return when in the area.
