Great little deli with sandwiches and salads, plus french fries and grilled sandwiches inside a small grocery store.

This little store is packed with Stuff. They have Gas/Diesel, Ice Cream Shop, Deli (with Fresh Broasted Chicken - I recommend), Liquor, grocery essentials, camping stuff, fishing stuff and more. Add to the fact that the service here is pleasant and I say it is a win win for travelers who wish to Get Away from it all.

Lately the broasted chicken has not been the same. They still have good options for take out though. Ice cream is yummy and they make malts and shakes to order.

I had the cheeseburger and fries meal, which was better than the brewery's burger next door. We also had fried zucchini and... More
