Stopped in for lunch on a Friday about 11:45. We ordered off of the menu, rather than one of the lunch specials. The chips that were brought out tasted to us like old oil had been used, as they left a bitter aftertaste. (It didn't...More

The food is good but you will wait quite a while for your food to come. They are very busy all of the time so if your in a hurry don't go then wait Until you have the time to wait.

Traveling we like to try different restaurants- no chains. This was one of the best places that we have tried. We went early as we heard that it gets very busy. Not fancy- it was like a hole in the wall cafe with excellent food.

The chips were VERY greasy. The queso was above average. Service was poor and the place was not busy. The food was ok but was floating in grease. Maybe thats why it tasted ok.

A really great restaurant with a very low publicity profile in a town with generally poor restaurant choices. You should add this one.
