Yippie they have reopened their restaurant And as always it's great food. Love the authentic Mexican and international cuisine. Esmy and her husband treat their customers like family. One of the brightest spots to eat in the area.

nice menu, lots of choices, and breakfast (american or mexican) served until 3pm!!! prices reasonable, service good. had chicken chilaquiles, chicken tenders, french toast, and a regular american breakfast on different days, and all were very good. complimentary tortilla chips and salsa served always.
