This place was amazing for breakfast- a little of the beaten path but well worth it! Doesn’t look like much from the outside but cozy and clean inside. The portion sizes are huge! Would return again and again!

I ordered the skillet with salsa verde, chorizo, eggs, and hash browns. It was very good, however the chorizo was spicier than I anticipated. The helpings were enormous, the service good, and all-in-all a positive experience. CASH ONLY.

After a mediocre hotel breakfast on Saturday morning, and an afternoon drinking in the mountains, all we wanted was a greasy breakfast smothered in green chili. This place had pretty good reviews, and it was open, so we decided to check it out. We took...More

Breakfast sticker shock left me forgetting about the food. Service not great for two women. And they wonder why women don't tip better. I'm sure we left a tip but felt slighted. Wooden chairs very hard.
