The service today was miserably bad. They have tables outside, but don’t actively seat them. So they sit open randomly. They have the no wait app now, but still a long wait. The food today was just blah. Was a 2 start visit at most...More

This was one of the best meals and service we've ever had. Coffee was delicious too. We had the spicy scrambled eggs and goat cheese, bacon and arugula omelet. Yum. The gravy and biscuits was unique and tasty. This place is epic.

Two of us split the eggs combo grande with bacon. They were very helpful splitting the dish in the kitchen on two plates. They had tasty home fries. We tried an order of sopapillas (5) as an appetizer, served with honey, which we were glad...More

Brunch on a Wednesday - so not too busy. Delicious breakfast dishes, although a bit too spicy for me, our friends enjoyed everything. Generous portions. Excellent service.

A New Mexico themed diner. Interestingly, it is on Southwest Avenue. Their slogan is something like, A taste of the Southwest on Southwest.
