I hear the Rib Rye breakfast is very good. What do you think?

    i have never had breakfast there, but did have lunch last summer with the family and it was fantastic--my husband had a terrific tri-tip sandwich, i had a wonderful glass of my favorite Qupe syrah with my lunch and the kids were mesmerized by the decor--lots of game---the service was nice and i reccomend stopping there if you are in the area for the experience alone--tho the food is quite good, too- let me know about the breakfast if you go- we might return this summer

      It has gone a little more upscale in the past few years, but still has charm and funk. Stick with the basics and you will be well fed. Much nicer side dishes now. Rib eye is a darn good basic. I think it is worth the detour.

        My friends prefer the food and ambience at the Far Western Tavern over the more famous Jockos. FWIW across the street is a family run mexican restaurant called Tres Luz (i think) and it hits the spot when you have that Mexican food craving, especially when you're on vacation.

          I've eaten there a few times and I will always go back. The rib eye is their flagship steak I believe, my friend loves their filet too...... You can't go wrong here.

            Just back from the Far Western and it is still a great place. It ain't cheap but it you get your money's worth. My wife and I split a ribeye dinner and it was plenty for the two of us. Really. The Mexican restaurant across the street which I misnamed is Siete Luminarias. Great tasting food at a really low prices. This resto would do well in ELA.

            Was that a typo or a rib eye with a shot of whiskey?
