There are new owners and they are breathing a new life into this resturant, I'm impressed. The waitresses are friendly. The place looks cleaner. My husband and I stopped in for lunch and were very pleased. He went with a gilled cheese with bacon sandwich and I ordered the Olympic Chicken salad. Really Good! It looked good, it tasted good. The fets was really fresh and smooth tasting. Can you tell I like cheese? We will definately go back. Congratulations to the new owners.

I have been there last Thursday, Friday for dinner and Monday of this week for breakfast. The place is deffinately cleaner, fresher and does not smell of sewer anymore. The waitresses are much more happier for sure.
Thursdays experience was great. Got waited on right away and the food was wonderful. Friday, thought I'de try the prime rib. I sat for 15 minutes before a waitress even took my order. One of the 4 men that run around finally brought me a cup of coffee. The prime rib that I had asked to be cooked medium was totally done and had no taste what so ever. It was just ok.. and for $15.00, I would not order it again. There were more chief's than indians on Friday and they needed someone walking around giving folks glasses of water and refilling coffee cups. One cup doesn't get it.
It's like they were trying to figure out how to run things while they were open and had customers that should have been taken care of. None of this should have been going on when open to the public. Too many chiefs spoil the pot.. so calm down fellas and pay more attention to your customers then the goings on of your staff. Pay more attention to the chef and what he is sending out the window.
Pay more attention to your soups... not half as good as they used to be. Chilli was blah and your beef barley was just barley without beef. Cream of potato again very pasty and blah..
The prices are good and the amount of food you get is good to. Do a few tweaks here and there and I will be great!

The food is about the same as before. I noticed no difference that stuck out. Not to be mean, but they really could start new by bringing in better wait staff. My waitress, well there is no nice way to say it. She smelled like an ashtray and had a few teeth missing. Not the kind of girl I want bringing me food.

Anyone been to the dentist lately! She probably doesn't make enough money to even get a cleaning! Let alone work done!

Never again, enough said. Maybe new owners, but it's the same hole in the wall. Same workers same cook.
Same smelly place.

I had the brunch, never again, everything was dried out and even the looks of the food was unappealing. I don't even plan on giving it a second try. First impressions are usually right. I do like the Golden Mine and Whistle Stop, good food at a good price.

I am not the previous owner, if so it would have been run in a different manner. They have a great location and seems like a lot of traveler business, but they need to concentrate on the return customer, not some travelers who will be there only once and gone. The new owners are doing better, concentrating on the locals. Maybe they'll be able to draw back the families of our community.

I use to go often before the new owners and everything was always EXCELLENT, now it SUCKS!! Let's start with the friendly faces of the waitresses that I've grown so close to are GONE!! WHY?? That was one of the many reasons I went there. Now all that is there are these young tiny boppers that are barely old enough, if at all, to serve alcohol. Might need to be investigated?? Not to mention the food, WILL NOT BE BACK!! Unless the old owner and the OLDER waitresses come back!! MISS THE OLD GOOD TABLE!!

I won't go back to Good Table until they do some major fumigating. Too much vermin and grease.

The El Burrito Loco is pretty good and mobbed with people.

Speaking of chiefs, I've been in there several times since the new guys took over, and boy what a pair!!! The one new owner is running around like a speed freak and the other is sitting around nodding off. The only reason why I noticed this, is I had to wait 10 minutes for a waitress to even come to my table, so I had some time to observe. Also, I have been hearing of some drug dealing involving both new owners. Hmmm...I wonder which drugs they are on. It's pretty obvious to me. I don't know about you, but this is not the kind of business I want in our town nor would I take my family there to witness this mess. It won't be long before the police catch on. It's no wonder I have not been seeing some of the usual waitresses around. I'm sure they got rid of them before they could catch on to what's really going on!!!
The prices are higher and the food is no better anyway.
I WILL NOT BE GOING BACK FOR SAFETY REASONS!!!!

Someone mentioned there were 2 new owners... are they the previous owners sons? I know the previous owner has 2 sons somewhere around their mid 30s - give or take a few years.
