The Wild Horse Mercantile/Saloon is a one stop shop for just about anything you may need even if you did know you needed it. As you enter the establishment there is small and well stocked mini general store. Off to the left they have a small craft shop full of interesting things that are just waiting to find a new home. The Saloon is off to the right of the general store area there they have bar seating and tables for your convenience. The Saloon area is rustic with some unique posters and signs displayed very tastefully around the room. They have fire wood, ice, gasoline, diesel, and propane (for filling your tank) all at competitive prices.
I had lunch at the Wild Horse Mercantile on a lazy July afternoon at the Wild Horse Mercantile. I ordered their Cubin Pork sandwich with a house salad. As usual the service was great and the environment was very comfortable they make you feel at home. The sandwich was piled high with pork that reminded me of southern pulled pork with a little different taste it was very good and filling. The pork was tender and moist with a sweet and tangy taste topped with red onions and a hint of dill pickles. The salad was a house salad and I have had house salads before but this was one of the better house salads I have had. The salad had a good mix of greens along with cucumber, tomatoes, and shreds of carrots. The dressing I had was raspberry vignette walnut it was fresh and very tasty.
There breakfast is to die for I had the French Toast and my friend Otto had the Heavenly Sheepherders breakfast(bacon & onions cooked in hash browns with 2 eggs nestled in topped with cheddar jack cheese covered with sausage gravy). Otto had stopped in to visit with me on his way to visit his brother in MI and thought he was hungry so I took him to the Wild Horse Mercantile…he ordered the Heavenly Sheepherders breakfast and found that he was not hungry by the Wild Horse’s standards. He tried to eat the whole breakfast but could not do it. The French toast with sausage was delicious and portioned perfect. Their coffee was strong and fresh the cups stayed full thanks to the staff.
Not only do they serve great food and lots of it they have a full service Saloon for that refreshing adult beverage you desire.
