I recommend just about anything on this menu because they have a really good kitchen managed by capable staff. We usually split a meal... read more

I was with 3 colleagues at a conference and this place was an easy walk from our hotel. I felt as if I had walked back into 1978, but it was a fun walk. Service was a little slow due to a little back-up, but conscientious (we were pretty high maintenance....). The prime rib I had was really, really good... More

Great food, large portions, even better prices. The quality was very good. The Café is very family friendly. They have a good variety of meals, sides, and appitizers.

The nachos were made with that liquid fake cheese! Seriously! And I was supposed to get 1/2 off an appetizer for checking in on foursquare which they didn't honor.

Was disappointed in the huevos rancheros as the sauce was not up to par, the fried potatoes were not cooked. I have been eating here for years and have always thought the food was excellent...adding to my disappointment. I will go again, in hopes that it was just a fluke.
