Tasty

Fast, fun and friendly place. We grabbed a quick burger and it was delish. Enjoyed the atmosphere and right on the shopping strip.

My sister and I stopped by for breakfast and you basically either seat yourselves or order to go. We were given a menu to order from, but the coffee was self-serve. Note: they don't serve lunch until 11am. I ordered the Huevos Ranchero and that was pretty good. Service was decent but everyone was very friendly. Must try the breakfast... More

Had heard great things about Mahaleys, we went for lunch...cheeseburger was delicious...service was slow, and not very cheery...my main complaint is their gas station bathroom, you have to walk outside and around the restaurant...and I've seen truck stop bathrooms that are cleaner, no hand soap either...

We had Mahaley's for breakfast this morning and it was great!!! The staff was friendly, we were greeted right away and the food arrived to the table quickly. The freshly made breakfast tacos in homemade tortillas were large and very filling. We also ordered the fruit plate which came with a good variety of fruit. It's definitely a place we... More

We were across the street from this restaurant at the museum and it was convenient for us that particular day. That's the only reason we chose Mahaley's. Boy, I wish I had read some of the reviews before we ate there! Just rude people and poor service. Even though there were only four other tables occupied when we arrived, service... More

Trash tacos get A+ as well as the cheesecake. We always order to go & take back to our friends house so I've got no opinion of dine in service.

We had breakfast here, and the service was terrible. We waited forever to order and then for our food, and when it came, mine was cold. I sent it back, and it was microwaved instead of re-made. Works for somethings, but not so much for fried eggs.

Second time I've been here for Breakfast. First of all nobody tells you it's self serve for coffee or asks if you want food to go or dine in. There are only paper cups and one of the coffee thermos was labeled "Blonde"-turned out to be like a hazelnut flavor-hate flavored coffee. We were meeting another couple so were told... More

I thought the "famous" cinnamon rolls were good......but there is a difference between good and great. That said, the trash taco and the Juevos Rancheros were really good. It is too expensive for what you get but the quality of the food is good.
