Have had lunch here a few times and the place is always busy and the food is always good. Service is sometimes a bit harried as they really get cranking. Big servings and good food at a fair price. Can't beat that.

What a wonderful little surprise in a desolate location. We ate breakfast there and all five of us enjoyed our food immensely. The staff were extremely pleasant and kept our drinks topped off at all times. Best dang breakfast burrito I've ever had.

Come on down to South Park and meet some friends of mine... George and Judy (not the Jetsons) in the kitchen, as well as the rest of the staff provide a wonderful breakfast and lunch spot in this small town. Good homemade food.
