My husband and I had a late lunch there the other day. I had the grand burrito and my husband had some kind of chicken dish. When my food finally came it was cold. We won't go there again.

My wife and I eat here quite often, the Gold Pan breakfast (2.99) is an awesome deal. This is our place to go for a casual cafe style lunch/dinner. Very friendly staff good comfort food. Recommend this for tired travelers who just want a good meal at a good price with friendly people.
