“why eat anywhere else”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

Miriam is a wonderful host and great cook. Trout and chicken and bistec were the main course options. food is served family style with rice and beans and vegetables. $7 for adults and $4 for kids is a fantastic deal. added bonus is all the birds feeding in the fruit trees out the back window.

“Awesome and an authentic home cooked meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

The chicken was great. So was the gallo pinto, vegies, fresh berry juice and coffee. She treats you just like family and you can tell she cares.
