AAA Inspector Notes
Historic. Built in 1885, this eatery is a holdout among the West's lumber-camp cookhouses. A lumber worker had to consume some 5,000 calories a day to be able to work so the food is hearty, served family style and seconds are encouraged. Tables are setup cafeteria style and getting to know your table mates is part of the fun. A typical dinner menu is soup (such as beans and ham), salad, meat loaf with gravy and pork ribs with barbecue sauce followed by apple pie with whipped cream and a beverage. Families are welcome to browse the relics of bygone days.
