Great breakfast and dinner

You may not have considered this place as a breakfast location. It's great! One of the best omlettes I've had in a long time. The Mexican food is also great

Stopped in for lunch but the eggs can't be beat. So I ordered an omelet. Local diner type restaurant with a Mexican flare. Dinner served weekends. Great place for casual meal

Very nice atmosphere, clean and new. Extremely nice owners that are on-site almost constantly. We frequently go for lunch. My husband loves the fact that they always have soup. They are open for dinner as well. Dinner features Mexican cuisine. Seating is indoors or out in the summer.

A local restaurant with a Mexican flair skillfully catering to other culinary ethnicities. The omelets were very fresh and flavorful (although they could be a bit fluffier), with tasty home fries.
