We had some of our favorite food every at a couple spots in this town! First up is Wild Bills ! If you like a good burger this is your place. Such a fun atmosphere and it's fun to sit outside if the weather is nice! Remy's favorite part was the bathrooms "They are just my size". Needles to say they are tiny :)
Next is Rico's Food Truck . It's next to the Irish pub when the weather is right. If you can eat hear try the tacos or burgers! But all the food was amazing.
City on the Hill Coffee Shop - always time for some coffee. This is the coziest, most delicious coffee place. Be sure and stop by and read even more history on the town!
