  • Gondola would be the restaurant that I would like to bring back. Never have found any pizza anywhere that holds a light to theirs.

  • The Saddle was one of my favorites among several from the past. Bud's and the Rebel Maid and the Bridle also come to mind. The Dixie Hotel had great home cooked food as well.

  • I can't remember the name of the restaurant, but it was located just off the square in front of the old stockyard. Best burger and fries you could ever hope to eat. That or the old Pope's Cafe.

  • Many may not remember it, but Popeyes Place on Depot St next to the old Model Laundry building had the best burgers I have ever tasted in all my years.
