I had Chicken Fried Steak with baked potato and green beans. The steak was hand breaded and not redi-made. Dinner came with soup or salad and roll with butter. I was really impressed with the taste of the food and service. We will definately eat there again. The food prices are really reasonable too! Most prices were $8.95 or less. There were a few combinations that could go upwards of $25 but very few.

Had the skirt steak it was good and they didn't skimp on the serving . The fried jalapeños were hot too.
This place seems to be on an uptick and we've dined here four times in the last two months and had great food and even better service. Everything was fresh and flavorful. My husband has become a fan of their gaviota cocktail - not on the menu but worth asking for.
Starting out, the salsa was good, right off the bat. This family-style Mexican food is pretty good, really. The reception/service is a bit weird, but it could have just been the one lady who had a mix of two problems: lack of attentiveness and rudeness/staring, although I kind of recall similar feelings from my last visit, and also at the little store and taco shop next door, is very cool, especially for such a rural area. The massively popular place is probably some of the only decent Mexican food for miles, hence its popularity. Looks like they also have a taco/burrito truck for warmer temperatures. I'd give this place 3.5, maybe... I don't know. I'd go back, though I won't be thinking about it and/or eagerly anticipating my next visit, per-se. Decent spot.

Awesome breakfast items for a very reasonable price. The weekend breakfast specials are usually worthy at a Five Star resort! Service is great and very friendly staff!! While they last, the bakery items are fresh and delicious! I've been coming here since 2007 and to me, it's the only good place in town for breakfast!
Old infrastructure cared for as carefully as one imagines it could be on limited budget, this is clearly an "old timer" building housing a long time restaurant that is a favorite with locals it seems based on folks inside and conversations overheard during our visit. Choose carefully from the menu and this can be a decent place for a bite in Emmett if you're passing through at meal time. Okay food, low prices, pleasant service. The young manager was also server for us and based on his interactions with us, other customers and staff his personable approach was one of the most enjoyable pieces of the experience. A hitch here was the bakery. This is advertised "...& Bakery" but the pie slice we ordered was far past prime and so soggy we couldn't eat it. I'd avoid bakery items were we back again. THIS N THAT: 1) PARKING: In paved. un-striped lot. 2) ACCESSIBILITY: Looks like one entry may be level in. The other has a makeshift short concrete ramp over single step up. Seemed all on one floor inside. Tight spaces for anyone pushing stroller or using wheelchair. Some tables looked as if enough space to be wheelchair accessible. 3) OUTDOOR TABLES: Handful or less of tables outside in front right on the street. But for weather not permitting on the day of our visit, this would be our choice for seating here.
went here for lunch today and I had Mushroom burger, because the place seems popular and I had wanted to compare with the other non chain place in Emmett I had a burger at. This place was really crowded with long time regulars when we were there. The staff was really not very personable or cheerful in personality. On the burger the "swiss" cheese which didn't taste like any swiss I've ever tasted before because it didn't have any swiss cheese like flavor, was on top of the 5 super duper small mushroom slices I received. I think it's one mushroom sliced per burger unlike the other burger I received in town which was saturated with fresh mushroom goodness. it just wasn't a good burger because it was over cooked and the lettuce was not good . . . and it was really dry and hard to swallow. I didn't finish the burger. I've never had a mushroom burger so dry before.... will not return bc the food wasn't very good.

The old style drive in! Awesome so lets stop here! I love it, just pull up pick up the phone and place your order. Great nostalgic idea! The menu is priced pretty reasonable with may burger options for size. Hot dogs and fish sandwiches too! Just a plain old burgers with plain old buns! The service is friendly and quick and the food fresh. The burger was good but the hot dog not so. Precooked and done in the fryer. I have no problem with the fryer but it only take 3-4 minutes max to cook it so make them fresh! All in all a cool little bring back the oldies kind of place.I would not travel far to go there but if I am in town...sure why not! Ps... beware of the smokers in the cars next to you! That part really does suck!
Seriously this is a disgusting place to eat. They list mayonnaise as a condiment on their menu, but they serve Miracle Whip (Eww, disgusting). Their burger patties seem like congealed something or the other. And I still cannot get over the Miracle Whip. IT IS NOT MAYO. Please, CHANGE YOUR MENU to reflect honesty, or actually serve mayonnaise. Disgusting. And we are considering moving to Emmett. Hopefully someone at the company reads this and will do something about it. The shakes were fine. Nothing special, but the shakes and soda pop were the only thing ok about our experience.
I am disappointed that I have to even give this place a star. After returning a few of our burgers (received incorrect orders) we received two burgers that were sloppily put together and tasted like garbage. We had ordered a burger without mayo and it appears as if they had just scraped off the condiment and threw it back to us. We then were told by one of the surly employees that worked there, to make sure we specify how we want our order next time.. There will be no next time for us! Make sure you drive past this place and go to The Blue Ribbon instead .

Nan: The waitress was better than the food. Very kind, informative and patient. But I had lemon chicken and I couldn't tell it was lemon. The portions were good, but just not a lot of flavor. Nic: Maybe it's because we showed up right when they opened for lunch. Nan: Well, it should be extra better then! What did you have? I can't remember. Nic: *sigh* Eh.........hmmm......can't remember. Something with rice. Nan: Well, that's says enough. Guess we won't be back there.
