Iva Ousterhout's famous chicken dinners have been served since 1938. She originally prepared her chicken dinners for oil-rig workers who rented rooms from her in the mid 1900s. Word-of-mouth traveled fast and others soon wanted to enjoy her meals. Over the years, the restaurant has had three kitchens built along with many other additions to accommodate an ever increasing number of patrons. Although Iva is no longer preparing the meals, the restaurant is now on its third generation of family ownership.  Iva's niece Monica King along with her husband Gene took over in 1983 and are still active in the kitchen in present day. Monica's son Kevin and his wife Natalee along with their five children now enjoy the challenge of carrying on the tradition of Iva's Chicken Dinners.
