Had a bacon wrapped steak with a delicious Spanish sauce on top! I went straight home and took some extra statins! Good food, good service, popular with locals. Out of the way, about 5 miles out of town, but definitely worth it!

This is the only restaurant by our home so we go here a lot. Thank goodness there food is always spot on good. The owner and other employees are amazing. Raphel always has a smile on his face. You never go wrong with drinks either. It's free pouring and the drinks always taste good. It's sad that they want to... More

We have passed this place many times and decided to stop in. The murals on the outside have always been a draw. We were met at the door and welcomed in. The service was attentive, the food for me, was excellent ! The decor especially the stained glass windows unparalleled and a joy to look at. It is definitely worth... More

They changed the recipes. It is horrible. Food didn't taste good at all. Service was horrific. Not worth a drive. I will not come back to the place. Would not recommend to anybody. They must have changed the chief.

I went here with my adult daughter May, 2015. I ordered a side salad and a chile rellano. The salad was ok. Lettuce was pretty pale, but that's not my complaint. I have had the chili rellano at least twice before here. I had no complaints. This time it tasted different. It had almost a chemical taste to it. I... More

The meal was good, service was good, and the price is right! Really enjoyed our early dinner today. There weren't very many other customers while we were there so I don't know how they would handle a rush, but our experience was spot on. Our waiter was quick to take our order and our dinners were hot and tasty shortly... More

I just got a house in this area and I'm enjoying trying out the local flavor. I've eaten at this restaurant before and loved the food and it's charming ambiance. This last time however, the meat had a bit of a chemical taste, and I know now that's when I should have stopped eating. I am sorry to say that... More

The food was good as always. I really didn't like how we were treated. I guess stuff of this place doesn't like customers with kids. Place was pretty empty.
