Quaint classic Mom and Pop restaurant. The southwestern chicken fried steak and the green chili stew were great. Excellent sides. Wonderful friendly service. Prices were great.

A very friendly mom and pop restaurant. We had homemade green chili stew and a burger. Nice portion size and reasonable priced. We passed up the homemade pies, but they looked delicious.
