In our one weekly vacation this place was in the top two for sure. The menu is very diverse and portions can easily be shared. The staff is super friendly and decor is very eclectic. The Mexican dishes are above average to very good.

We asked for suggestions at the visitor center on our way back to Las Vegas leaving Hoover damn. It was one of two suggested and we decided to visit. Boy were we thrilled. The waitstaff was friendly and helpful despite the restaurant being near capacity. I ordered a combo of chicken enchilada and beef taco. By far the best taco... More

We ate here a few times on trips that had us passing through the area. The food is good. Good portions. Service good. We had dinner here on St. Patty's Day. Very different take on corned beef. Breakfast is good. Small and friendly. There is a patio for good weather days.

Order the chorizo burrito! I'd show you a picture, but I ate the burrito, too late now! According to my son's plate you need to be hungry if you order the pancakes!

My husband and I have been patrons of this adorable local restaurant for about a year now and EVERY TIME we stop by we are happy with the delicious and homemade food. Some highlights: "Those" potatoes (baked then pan fried potatoes with onion and peppers - just like Mom used to make), chicken flautas (stuffed with chicken and hand rolled... More

The wait staff was very nice, and this place was better than fast food. However the food wasn't amazing or anything, just OK.

My husband and I took our two sons, ages 11 and 15, to this diner after we finished our Flightlinz zip line tour ( which was GREAT!!) We ordered a burger(huge and juicy, cheese quesadillas, chicken enchiladas and a chicken burrito. They all came out super fast and all were very tasty. We didn't order any dessert, but their fresh-made... More

You must try the tripleberry pie. Delicious. That's all we had along with coffee and it could not have been any better. Actually, all the pies looked great so making the decision was difficult. Seeing other customers food orders and the empty plates heading to the kitchen tells me something as well. The staff was fantastic. Will definitely visit again.
