the restaurant is small, you almost always have to wait, but usually not too long unless its peak time. It's always busy for a reason! The locals all know how great it is. I love the chicken quesedillas.

The food is very very good, but it's small building is what keeps us from going often. It's my favorite place to get cheese enchiladas and I love their salsa, but my husband has some PTSD issues from the military and the small space which is usually packed full of people really give him anxiety. Other than the fact I... More

They serve food all day to include breakfast from 8 am to 11 pm. The children's menu only had four choices, but our kids split a hamburger and homemade fries from... More
