Met my son in law for lunch and we enjoyed Pfred's Preferred Pfries, Smoked Beef Brisket Tacos, as well as the Reuben. A delightful meal with lots of flavor and eye appeal. A bit over $26.00, great for all that we had to eat.

Our group of 8 stopped here for lunch. What a fun, casual spot. I had the Brisket Sandwich and my husband had the Pulled BBQ Chicken. Along with refreshments, all was tasty.

I love a hike or bike ride in a National Park as much as the next guy; but who wants to lug all the food along for a day's journey … granola bars get old after a while. In the Cuyahoga Valley NP, there's a...More
