Fodor's Review

This locally beloved diner serves American roadhouse food and is notably the only place in town open for breakfast. Tito's also serves tasty seafood pasta, the ubiquitous halibut, and the best selection of fresh-baked pies for maybe 2,000 miles. The reindeer sausage sub and the huevos rancheros are well worth trying. When the original Tito's burned down, uninsured, in 1999, the owner was faced with financial ruin. But this tiny community got together and put Tito back on his feet and rebuilt the restaurant. Tito has since passed on, but he's still remembered fondly.
