Default Favorite Establishment to stop at when you wheel?

By no means am I endorsing DWI with this question.
I just got a new issue of a Jeep Mag, and they were talking about favorite dives to stop at along the trail.
Of course it was geared towards every bar out West, and they would mean nothing to us here in the Great lakes area.
Unless you are one of those that do go out West to wheel at some point.

So, where are your favorite spots to stop, eat and relax when your out wheeling, and or after you're done wheeling for the day?

Lock Stock & Barrel.
No, it burnt about 3 years ago and never re-opened.
Word is that someone locally bought it this year and plans on opening it back up.

Big fan of the Crown & Campfire also!

They usually don't have "establishments" in offroad parks. So, I guess you could say the food stand at the park.

I guess the convenience store/restaurant/gas station/shoe shine on the corner by Barton's at Flatnasty would count as the hot ticket.

That was a pretty good place.

And any place I can slam shots before heading out for the day.

Ambassador at Tech for pizza and fishbowls was always fun.
Around a campfire after a day at Silver Lake sand dunes.
Moab brewery is my all time fave. Actually, I would prefer to be there right now.

xwhatever for Bear Track Inn for breakfast on Drummond. We also hit Chucks on Friday nights up there for the fish fry and a few cans of beer.

We normally hit Wilson's for breakfast when we did the Trolls run in Indian River.
