Try the Detroit Style or Hand Tossed crust pizza. Always a hit. Many other choices if you're not feeling like pizza. Friendly staff, good service, good beer selection and consistently good food. As with any place if it's overly busy bring your patience.

Excellent burgers, the southwest grill apps are delicious. We have tried all the burgers and it’s hard to pick a favorite

Avoid this dump, they have super slow service. Over an hour to get food in a place that's under half full... Left a 20 for drinks and walked out. Lazy employees didn't even apologize or offer any reason to stay. Employees, and management are useless...More

My husband loves the fish sandwich here. He says it's the best in town. Unfortunately, it's always very noisy and loud so there is little chance of holding a conversation. Go for the food, have your conversation elsewhere.

My husband and I went there for the Detroit-style pizza and we hadn't been in over 7 years since we live in Georgia. The pizza was just as I'd remembered - great! We sat at the bar because the joint was jumping and lots of...More

First of all, who serves "breakfast only" until 1:00? Our waitress was slow, and made too many mistakes. The food was ok at best, hence the 1 star. Won't go back

This is just a bar and restaurant. It's really not a rest stop, like the name implies; kind of tricky, I know! Sorry!
