Excellent food and great service! The owner was an amazing host and told us a little about the building. It is an old bank converted into the restaurant. We had enchiladas and hamburgers which were so delicious. Thank you for the hospitality.

Stopped here on a road trip out east and it was just fine for what we needed. Limited menu but great salsa! Fast service and hot food. Definitely recommend.
