I wish I had a Better review of this place. ( I usually don't like giving one star) we went for breakfast, I had the migas which consisted of really hard but super greasy eggs and fried corn tortillas.

We had an older waitress who was just rude. We walked in and she motioned for us to sit down. Service was downhill after that.

Restaurant has been filthy the 3 times I went. If the front of the house is that bad, imagine how the kitchen is. I won't go back.

I lived in Texas for almost fifty years before moving back to Alabama about two years ago. I have always enjoyed Mexican style breakfast with eggs, meat, refried beans, and tortillas, but you simply cannot finds that in many places outside of Texas. I ate here for dinner the first night I was in town and noticed on the menu... More

The food here is typical Tex-Mex. Nothing outstanding; but just what one expects. Their service is very good.

Nice cafe atmosphere on the inside with tables and booths and kept very clean. Chips and salsa came out quickly. Very attentive and friendly wait staff. The chips were warm and crispy and the...

We ate brunch here yesterday and dinner today. The food is delicious and the servings are generous. The service could be a little better (tonight no one came back over once we got our food).
