We stopped at this Mexican restaurant for dinner after a long days drive because the parking lot was busy with locals. We made the right choice! The service was quick and friendly. The food was homemade and delicious.

I dont care how good or bad a place is if the manager or owners will not speak the parents of uncontrolled screaming children. My wife and I arrived from Moab to spend night before heading to Bruce. I'm sure the place is ok but...More
