Glad we ate here. We were recommended to eat here from the owner of the Route 66 hotel and so glad we did. The waitress was so friendly. Food was large in serving size and very filling. Sangria was delicious.

Just happened upon this restaurant while driving through. Pleasant décor in a quiet setting. Excellent service. Some of the best Mexican food we've ever tasted. Had a fish taco, taquitos preceded by yummy flour tortilla chips. All fresh tasting & light, unlike most Mexican food....More
