I won't go back to a restaurant that does not have yummy food for both me AND my children. This place has both. And the prices are reasonable. The staff was very friendly and kind to myself AND my children. I highly recommend. We've been here before and are sure to return.

Food couldn't be more mediocre. Family of staff is not that friendly. Unfortunately, It's one of the only places to eat right there in the small town. I would never come back if I had any better options nearby.

It's disappointing to know that we've fallen short of your expectations in the past, Elizabeth. We want you to come back because you're excited to get your fill, not because you feel like you don't have any other options around here. Our goal is to serve you awesome food and make you feel as well taken care of as possible... More

Great food, reasonable prices, unbelievable service. Went with large party of 12 and service and food was incredible prices were reasonable. Lived on east end for 12 years and passed by many times and always busy. We went off season for first time to give it a try and were pleasantly surprised will be back

The pluses are that the restaurant is very friendly. The service is attentive and helpful. There is a good selection of beers. Although we didn't try them this time, the desserts are good. Now for the food. One night I had the "combo" (Tacos and a burrito); another night I had the quesadilla. Both were pretty bad. Another person at... More

We stopped to this favorite neighborhood spot to try the 2-for-1 fajitas on a special night. Since we were able to walk from our neighborhood we met friends along the way and invited them to join us. We were seated at a large table and our waiter was very quick to take our order and deliver it in a timely... More

Love that you picked up some friends on the way over! I know you left this review a couple years ago -- hope we've seen you many times since! If not, we've got some $5 margaritas with your name on 'em. Until next time, Shana and Ron More

My husband and I had eaten there many times before our little one arrived. Now we still get there every once in a while and the staff is very friendly and as always the food is delicious. If you enjoy TexMex, they have wonderful choices. I recommend the Mexican Pizza, it's usually a special appetizer, but it's big enough to... More

We have been going to this family run restaurant for over 20 years. It is very friendly and a place where one feels very much at home. We went a little later tonight so it was nice and quiet. There is a good range of well-priced dishes -- each person in our party enjoyed a different one! At the end... More

We were five people and had a diverse selection from their menu. All were quite satisfied with the food, portions and taste. Very informal atmosphere and good service. The drinks were excellent and local beers very good indeed. Price was fair for the value received.

New Moon Cafe has been a favorite spot for eight years. It's a very relaxed, "no fuss" atmosphere with Tex-Mex home cooking. Beer on tap, terrific appetizers, chips-n-homemade salsa at the bar. Try the chicken enchiladas. The absolute best ever. Save room for Shauna's desserts. Sinful! A great local place, with consistently friendly servers, cold beer and proud family recipes... More
