We were staying at a nearby hotel and got our dinner to go. There were available tables at 8:00 on a Friday night. We enjoyed the good service and had a delicious margarita and complimentary chips and salsa with fresh tomatoes in it. We had the fish/shrimp ceviche tostada and the "al ajo" fish, which was a fresh and delicious... More

This is number 1 for a great reason. Absolutely great service, wonderful food and awesome portion size for lunch options. Go out of your way to eat here. You will not regret it. It is easy to understand why TripAdvisor folks love this place! Service and food are A+++

Such a welcome stop in the middle of a long drive from Sequoia .. made us so... More

We ( family of five) stopped here on our way to Las Vegas. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and efficient. The food was great value given it's good quality. I suggest booking ahead as it appears to be very popular with locals ( always a good sign!). The restrooms were clean and pleasant. We would definitely... More
