I have been dining at a Southwest Cafe since it opened years ago. Barbara foes an excellent job keeping her staff and patrons happy. One is always guaranteed a good meal and excellent service.

This is a great place for Mexican/Southwestern food. The nacho chips on the table are a nice touch - just don't eat too many or you won't have room for the great food. Drinks are good too. Casual with some outdoor seating in the summertime.

I loved the food and service, even the décor but wow is it expensive. Almost $80 for lunch for two (with weak but good margaritas-2 of them). I loved the salsa. I got an order to go, and it was $10!!!

I found the food to be not as flavorful as I had expected. It was not well seasoned and up to the standard I had been led to believe.

Went for lunch today. Was surprised at nice interior. Music was funny mix of Roxy Music, Alicia Keys, Led Zep, Adele (well, I can like every other song). On a nice weather day I may have felt like I was in a cave, but this...More
