We were the only customers the entire time here - Saturday evening at about 6:30 pm. Not sure why, because the food was good and the service and prices were as well. The chicken strips were great...as were the seasoned French fries.

We stopped by after church & will never return. Cheese tasted moldy! Food looked good, but was not. We will not be returning!

Not sure what we ate. Not familiar with the name of the food. It was okay, but wish I would have stuck with the burrito.

The sopapilla stuffed with beef and green chili over it was very good and the beans and rice with it made a great meal. The girls were very friendly and helpful. The rest of the menu looked like it would be a good place to...More

This is a very small town and most restaurants serve Mexican food but I would say this place has very authentic food. Very reasonably priced. Food served fast and with a friendly server. Definitely will stop here again on our way through town.
