Stopped in for brunch after a friend recommended the place. Very pleased with huevos rancheros and biscuit and omlet was good, but less memorable. Other dishes also looked good. Prices were moderate and service was fine.

Yes, for the most part. You can get lucky and not need one, but I would not push your luck on weekends or popular times. You can call them to make a reservation.
