I can't pass a dinner here each time I visit Door County! Home made goodness with an Ole'. And, save room (if you can) for the homemade deserts! Divine!

The local specialty is not hash browns inside 2 pieces of bread. No bread is involved. It's hash browns stuffed with egg, cheese and veggies and your choice of meat and it's absolutely delicious! Also, the guacamole is fantastic. Everything is house made...even the chips!

We found Hot Tamales totally by accident. We were driving around the town just looking to find a "hold us over snack"...and saw a sign pointing to "Hot Tamales." Well, we decided a tamale equated a "snack." So, we decided to give it a try....More

It's kinda a little different approach/ambiance than a typical restaurant...but the food is so freakin good and so fresh! I take my nachos seriously...these were hands down the best nachos I've ever had in my life!! No joke. Very kid friendly too FYI.

Very surprised and pleased to find Pork Pozole on the menu. It was absolutely wonderful. The tamales were hot (temperature) and savory. Very pleasant lunch. Good portion sizes.

Disappointed because house specialty tamales, not available. Enchiladas just ok. Enchiladas, rice, beans, lettuce and sauce served in a pile. Plenty of food, but there is another small Mexican restaurant in town that does a much better job with authentic ethnic food.

Went for breakfast. I had Eggs, sausage and toast. It was good. I also had a bit of someone else's Denver omelet. It was good too. The coffee was good and the cups never went empty. The folks were extremely nice.
