It was some of the best green and red chili I have ever had will be back for sure. Had heard from family how good it was. Would recommend every one go there for lunch.

They are only open 11 to 2, but well worth the effort to catch them when they are there. Mother and daughter business (mom cooks, daughter is waitress, server). Anything on the menu is excellent. Food is served hot, and everything is cooked to order....More
