Good Food

There are also some real interesting side dishes. For instance the Tamale Pie which has been made in house since 1975.

Old West History Theme

The entrance feels as if you are about to enter a old stage coach house. Once inside, you are treated to a host of western memorabilia that includes clothes worn by Tom Mix. Tom Mix was a silent film star between 1909 and 1935.

Mix was in over 290 films during that period. In 1940 Tom Mix was killed in an automobile accident on Hwy 79 between Oracle Road and Florence AZ. There is memorial on the west side of Hwy 79 marking the location.
