We drove through this little town early on a Sunday looking for a homemade meal and maybe something different. We stopped here because it looked open and had good reviews. It was great! We went for the buffet, which was $9.99 all you can eat. It had well prepared mexican flavored steak, chicken and fish, as well as all the... More

My children and I eat here regularly. This is seriously one of the best Mexican restaurants.... anywhere. Even my sister and brother-in-law, who have lived from one end of the country to the other, say that this is one of the best they have tried, including several in the west/southwest. The food here is always spot-on and fresh. There is... More

I have to say I had the absolute best meal of my life. The chimichanga is the biggest one you'll ever eat, (and was only $8.99) has the flavor of homecooked food, and is all wrapped up and tied with a bow. Hands down, best meal ever. All the reviews mention the owner's son and I can see why. His... More

My favorite restaurant in my hometown. The chef is amazing and every plate that comes from the kitchen is a work of art.

After reading the reviews we went to the restaurant yesterday but picked the only day they're closed (Tuesday). So we checked their hours and decided to come back today. Arrived at 4:25 to a hand-written sign on the door that read "we will reopen at 5 p.m." The third time won't be the charm because we won't try again. Went... More

We drive 40 minutes just to eat at this restaurant!! Have eaten here for many years and have never been disappointed. Owner's son is a real asset to the restaurant.

Although Google maps has this restaurant in a different location, we made a special effort to find it. It was worth it. Our appetizer was the size of an entrée. It was scrumptious. The food was very fresh. It was beautiful on the plate. Our service was excellent. I will go out of my way to eat at this restaurant... More

We'd read reviews that were great, so we decided to give it a try. GREAT service from the time we walked in the front door to the time we left. Wonderful food! Liked the bar with the sauces. Never seen that at a restaurant.
