There were 4 in our party. One meal was delivered cold and another was prepared incorrectly and had to go back. While we were eating a silverfish was crawling across the wall by our table - killed that one and another one showed up. Then as we finished our meal another one crawled across the table. Not a very clean... More

Stopped here for dinner based on many positive reviews. I have had Mexican fare in many different places around the world however I don't harbor over-realistic expectations for any one place. The service was good It was not late nor busy at all Most people were probably just having leftovers this evening after Thanksgiving. The Chicken fajitas came out quickly... More

Great off the highway stop on the way back from Hoover Dam. Food was awesome, shredded beef was slightly greasy which is why there is 4 and not 5 stars on here.

We found this little place while visiting in the area. Great breakfast menu (all day) plus Mexican food plus diner food - something for everyone, extensive menu. We got there for a late lunch (3pm) and the place was very busy. Guessing it's like that all the time! We had the friendliest server - he was so pleasant that it... More

We wanted Chinese, but the clerk at the Quality Inn suggested this diner, and threw in a card good for a 10% discount. The menu offers generous helpings of standard diner fare, plus a page-full of Tex-Mex options. I had chicken enchiladas (cheese, beef and spinach the other options), my companion the Santa Fe Chicken, and we switched plates halfway... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way back to Vegas from Hoover Dam. The food was delicious, and the prices were great! The staff and locals are also very friendly. I hope I have a chance to go back.

Showed up early, a little after 6 am. Walked inside and nobody was around. Eventually, young lady came out of the back. Seated and ordered eggs and sausage. Wanted fruit but restaurant didn't have any. Settled for sliced tomatoes. Food was very distressed looking. Sausage was dry and tasteless (looked like store bought frozen) Tomatoes were dried and shriveled. Worst... More

We got on the wrong road to Hoover Dam and ended up going through Boulder City. Best side trip ever... We were hungry and saw this little place and I just pulled over and we ate there. Great food and great desserts... The people were fantastic. You might want to miss your turn to go to this quaint little diner...
