We sat out on the back patio and watched the hummingbirds in their new feeders. Our service was excellent. Chips and their dip are tremendous. And the meals were exquisite.

This place does Mexican- American cuisine better than anyone else in oakhurst. Nice views large menu. Naturally, huge portions. Good service even when crowded, so don't worry about the crowd in front. The parking lot is nearly always full.

I am sorry I don't know the answer to the question. The restaurant is large enough that they might have a catering operation. Your best bet is to contact the restaurant directly. The type of food they serve could very well... More
