    Every year in July, Williams Lake is host to the second largest rodeo and stampede in Canada...only the Calgary Stamped is larger. The Stampede grounds are right beside the highway as you head down Hy 20 towards Bella Coola. When you're in Cariboo Country, you're in the middle of cattle and horse country.

    This resturaunt is small and is owned in a family business. This resturaunt is open 6am to midnight every day and has the best rates for breakfeast, lunch, and dinner. This resturaunt has each facilities such as: smoking and non smoking, and out door service on their patio. The food at this resturaunt is unbelievable you get the fully tummy on what is should be for a really good price.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite dish from this restauraunt is the double deluxe burgur with fries. This meal is so good because the burgur is not small like other restauraunts and they load you up with fresh cut fries and after having this meal it makes sure you are tied over till dinner time, with no questions asked.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Heavy loaded loging trucks are a common sight in the Williams Lake area. Hundreds of them can be seen in the course of a day hauling to the various mills in the area. Give them a wide berth on roads, specially on the hills.
