One of the better green chile cheeseburgers I've had. Cute place, popular with the locals, friendly and efficient service. Both the regular and sweet potato fries were undercooked--but the burger was so big that I didn't care.

The wait staff is VERY nice and attentive. Hamburgers are great, and breakfast is good, down-home breakfast. Nothing healthy, but well done. Always have a good experience here. Good prices for what they serve as well.

Stopped in for breakfast on the way out of town. Decided to try a local place instead of Denny's. Service is very friendly and the food was good. Choose pappitas (fried potatoes) over the hash browns. Menu had good selection and prices were very reasonable. Will be back. Maybe for lunch or dinner next time.

We loved the hand packed burgers and the awesome bread! The burger itself is well made, with generous portion size, as well as amazing juicy flavor. The meatloaf is also amazing. Worth the trip!

Stopped in for lunch. Great service, good food. Above average sopaipillas. I'm told they're also very reliable event caterers. Enjoy.

I had the cod and sweet potato fries and if there was one time that I received a meal that looked like love went into the presentation of the plate - this was it. I would recommend to locals and people passing through. My wait staff was warm and took really good care of us.

They are open late only on Fri and Sat. The food is eclectic and tasty. The staff is very friendly. A nice local place. We HS the Mexican food and it was good.

The staff are friendly and efficient. Plenty of seating available. I ordered my egg over medium and it was over well. I thought that the papitas would be done onsite - but they were simply the frozen kind warmed up. Still a good bargain and the food was enjoyable.
