Up until a few months ago, this was my favorite place to eat in the Rio Grande area due to the selection of menu items being so varied and the fact almost all breakfast items (except home fries and waffles) are served all day. Now, I am not so sure this place is really such a great place due to... More

Our sandwiches came with chips and a slice of pickle. Service was wonderful. My husband also ordered an apple turnover to take back to our hotel... More

Normally we go to breakfast here, the location and the quickness to seat and food arrival are paramount. On weekends you will wait for a table if you arrive at peak times.

They are always friendly. The food is good - diner, so not gourmet, but never-the-less quite good and a good value. They have a huge menu and very friendly servers. The also have specials. it's nice they are there for all meals during the day and for in-between times!
