    I'm giving this category a 3/5 because of one resturant named Sugar Creek in the area. This establishment is well staffed, great food and has very intuitive management. This resturant is a awesome place to hangout during open hours and a nice place to eat.

    There is great opportunities for people to work in the oil field and at local stores in the area. I've had a great experience working in this area and would reccomend people to where I have previously worked.
