Great location in Kernville for gas, propane, ice-cream, fried chicken and deli. Upgraded gas station if you will. Love the marinated mushrooms in the deli. Gifts and some fishing supplies.

I’ve been here twice and am turned off (angered). Paid $20 for a bag of coffee that costs $15 on the other side of the lake. (side note: Kern Roasting Co. coffee is awesome and highly recommended. But more reasonably priced elsewhere.) Also saw them...selling confederate flag bags last summer. I’m just not into the discrimination component of that. Don’t think it’s necessary in a business in California, or anywhere else for that matter. Disappointing. They have gas... there’s where they get their star.More

All around everything place. Fill your car or rv or propane tank and your tummy. Staff is always pleasant and smiling. Food is take out and good. Buy your lottery tickets and fill you cooler with ice and drinks of all types. A mini market...and local information hub.More

...great sandwiches. Strange place this, understandably, given its spectacular location, a bit 'back of beyond' and certainly not a 'restaurant', but hidden amongst the gas station, crossbows, fishing tackle, dog food and fridge magnets is a nice little deli that produces very fine sandwiches at...an equally fair price.More

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. You will find a little bit of everything here, and its definitely worth seeing, if...for no other reason than to check out the 10 foot chicken outside. Its a definite landmark.More

We just wanted to pick up lunch to bring back to our hotel, drove by this place and decided to give it a try. My wife had a turkey sandwich which wasn't that good, bread was not fresh. I had the cheeseburger and fries meal,...which was better than the brewery's burger next door. We also had fried zucchini and a corn dog which were good. They also have ice cream, Slush Puppies, and a bunch of other drink machines which we didn't try. Not a bad inexpensive option for lunch, but I'd recommend the hot food. All the employees were friendly and welcoming.More
