This is one of our favorite restaurants in the banner elk area. Always great service and the chicken soup is outstanding. Free oysters on Thursday evenings during the summer.

Our waiter Juan was very good, food was great and the atmosphere! My top shelf margarita was very good with the fresh guacamole. They have a buffet bar for salsas. We’ll be back!

It’s not too hard to find, pull into the parking lot of Great Train Robbery & you’re at the right place! Awesome food, great salsa bar as well. I had the Texas fajitas and it was a huge portion with plenty of large shrimp!

Our first visit with recommendations from friends that we were with. It was very good. The portions were enormous! It had a salsa bar which was nice if you wanted more salsa to dip chips in or for your tacos, etc. We shared two appetizers...More
