DIRECTIONS: Drive east on US 60 towards Apache Jct. Exit 196 for Idaho Road AZ88. Go north on Idaho Road for about 2 miles. Turn right on AZ88/Apache Trail, then drive approximately 4 miles and turn right on Nodak. There is a sign for the restaurant at this turn but the sign and the street sign are not visible until you are almost on it. Follow Nodak as it goes around a bend to left and turns into E Mining Camp Street. Follow almost to end and the restaurant is on your left. Park in the far corner near the fence.
I drive a white jeep[masked]-5190.
