Everyone liked the food here, and we were here because it came highly recommended.

NEVER had a bad experience, and I've eaten here for years. Never gotten diarrhea or gotten ripped off. The lunch fajitas are the best bargain around...so flavorful. Salsa not too spicy either. Best sweet tea of anywhere!!!

Another average, kinda clean country restaurant. The owners don't take pride in their facility but the food is not bad.
