Great place to take the family, casual eating and opportunity to play some pool. Reasonable priced, great service, a variety of great sandwiches and probably the best hamburgers in the area.

Not too many options in the Foscoe area, but family billiards is a nice "bar food" scene with pool tables and a large flat screen television. Most of seating is along the bar... Don't expect to eat healthy but the food is very good and relatively quick.

We were mistaken and thought there was an actual restaurant there. Instead, you eat at the counter. However, the food was really, really good. Family friendly atmosphere. And pool was fun. We will definitely be back!

My family of four were looking for a bite to eat after our cold mining excursion. Being that this place was right across the street and the local highly recommended the food, we thought we'd give it a shot and boy are we glad we did! The burgers were excellent and the onion rings were the best I've ever had.... More

Driven past this place countless times and had heard they had a great hamburger. Finally stopped for lunch and tried it out. Best burger I've had in the mountains during the 8 summers we've been been around. Burger was done just right, juicy and high quality beef. Onions petals were very good and plentiful. Will be back next year and... More

No overcooked, bland burgers here. Delicious french fries and tea that is flavorful not just sugar water. In addition, they also have daily specials that have never disappointed me. Stay and play a reasonably priced game of pool while you are there!
