We went there whole group, food was amazing chicken super tasty and juicy fried cheese awesome. They roasting the chicken slowly over the charcoal you get slight mesquite flavors. Inexpensive and good quality.

We visited this restaurant a couple of times on our trip. The first time was for lunch and our server did not appear to like serving gringos although the food was quite good. We later returned with the rest of our family for dinner and had much better service. The location is very convenient to the Hampton Inn and Holiday... More

This was close to our hotel ( The Hampton Inn) and served very good food. Though the menu is mostly chicken dishes, there are a few other things too. It is also quite reasonably priced. The staff is quite helpful and most speak very good English.

This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel so we thought we'd try it for dinner. Inside it was clean but dark and difficult to read the menu. But the roaster chickens in the oven looked fabulous. Service was a bit slow but friendly. Our meal was not very memorable. Average food, a bit bland and very small portions.... More

Chicken is on the menu here. Succulent, juicy, roasted chicken in many forms. Lots of good sides too. The service is Ok, the staff is not bilingual so there may be a bit of a problem ordering. Otherwise, good fast food at a good value

You'd never be able to get food this good next to a motorway in the UK! Its by no means glamorous, but the food is great, its a good price and arrives quickly so you can get on with the rest of your journey! Has free wifi and clean bathrooms.

A great middle class restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere and plenty of delicious roasted chicken that you can watch sizzling over charcoal. Add the delicious pickled onions, one of my favorites, and you have a very fine meal. The surroundings are very nice but can get a bit crowded during dinner time. A great place for a family meal with... More

Just ate there and the rotisserie plate was good. My wife had fried chicken salad and it wasn't. The prices are reasonable and inquire with the adjacent hotels about a discount. We received 20% off using holiday inn.
