Granted, it was a Friday night but it took forever to get food and no one checked on us for the first 45 minutes. We flagged a waitress to at least get us some chips during their "backed up kitchen" period.

Whenever we are thinking that we'd like to go out to dinner, we usually end up at this restaurant. We LOVE the food and the margaritas. Service is always with a smile. I like that the owners work right there at the restaurant too.

We stopped for lunch at the Sunset Café a few weeks ago. We had a burger and a beef brisket sandwich. We each had a soup. All was good. Our server was very nice. The space was cute but needed a deep clean.
