    I've been twice. The first time there were about sixty people standing in line so we just kept going. The next time, we made sure we got there just as they opened. There was a line but it went quickly. I liked it a lot but I haven't been in a few years so it may be different now.

    It is a destination restaurant and as such, is subject to much hype. As mentioned, get their around opening time so as to avoid long lines. The food itself is good, but not outstanding. If going strictly for the food it is probably best to life within a short distance of the place.

    We will go there because the ride is the real objective.....and a meal in that quirky Meers place can be part of a great day with friends, but so could Wendy's for that matter.

    It's kind of like Eischen's Bar, in Okarche , but a bit more genteel.

    It’s OK if you like buffalo burgers.

    I thought it was Longhorn

    Edit: from here "famous for our Meersburger, a 7" diameter burger made exclusively from prize winning Texas Longhorn beef raised on the family's own ranch. Beef that is actually lower in cholesterol than chicken!"

    Love the 22oz bottles the way beer was meant to be bottled :drink

    It's buffalo. There is a local herd not too far from the restaurant. But not that you mention it, both longhorn and buffalo are similarly lean cuts.

    RogerWilco nailed it in my opinion. Last time I was there we came in from some backroads (mostly dirt) and found an interesting route...at least for me as I was seeing everything from a different perspective than the usual route.

    I would suggest you call ahead to be certain they are open. Tried to take the wife there a year or two ago and they were not open when they were supposed to be. Their 'closed days' were rather odd anyway, like Monday and Tuesday or Tuesday and Wednesday or something like that. We went the first day and they were closed. No problem ... the sign says they're open tomorrow. Went back 'tomorrow.' No dice. I guess they just decided they needed an extra day off. So, the wife still hasn't been there!

    If I remember correctly, they had some tax issues and were closed for awhile.

    Just to touch base on this again, I have been trying to learn Locus lately and am beginning to like it better than Osmand. Problem is it has a lot more options than Osmand and therefore has a steeper learning curve.

    Also I'm not sure I can still trust my Nomu S10, I rode part of the Colorado BDR with it a few weeks ago and it tried to quit on me, lucky we were about through riding when it quit and it now seems ok but I need to have a GPS I can trust.

    I think you hit on why I did not like Locus vs. OsmAnd. OsmAnd was a lot easier to get up and mastered quickly. I need to take a look at Locus again since I have it.

    Bummer on the Nomu. What kind of issues were you experiencing so I can keep an eye on mine for similar issues?

    So far, I've been very pleased with the $120-ish price and performance. Used it about 5k miles now on mostly rocky and bumpy back roads and numerous hours long rains. Battery life is still excellent and performing like new.

    Yep, osmand is easy to learn. That's why I used it.
    But as I learn Locus it is going to be better for following tracks in the woods.

    The Nomu was shutting down on me and didn't seem to want to charge in Colorado but has been working fine at home and in the car around town. I hope to take it to Missioui in a couple of weeks for the loose nut ride and see how it works out for that.

    ^ Hey Bill. Bad charger perhaps? How were you charging - off the bike, wall mount USB adapter? I had a crappy wall plug that would barely charge anything once. Never did look to close at the Nomu S10 to see if the battery is replaceable. Hope you get it resolved it is a great unit and very rugged for the cost.

    Keep us posted as I hope to never need your solution - but good to know if I do. Cheers.

    Charge on the bike while riding, two different chargers, one of those Battery Tender-USB chargers and a "3BR Waterproof USB charger power port" I kept the S10 pluged into one and my iPhone plugged into the other and randomly swapped them day to day. iPhone did fine.

    ^ Hope a new battery will fix it.

    ETA - did a quick search but nada. I've not looked yet, but I assume it has a removable battery that should be common and cheap.

    Let us know. Good cheap insurance to carry one in case.
